We specialise in guided tours for schools and groups. We can tailor projects to fit in with key stages in Geography and Science. We can arrange your visit to coincide with the hatching of chicks. Groups can also have the opportunity to help with the feeding of lambs, kid goats and poultry.
Groups can also enjoy a visit to the Barn Museum with its delightful displays of farming activities in Co. Armagh in bygone days which complements the rare breeds collection. Pre booking is essential.
The Farm is located beside the Craigavon Lakes, which is an ideal location for walking. A playground is situated in the gardens adjacent to the Farm.
