Bring your children to Trethorne Leisure Farm where they can enjoy ‘hands on’ experiences with our animals and have some all weather fun!
At Trethorne Leisure Park we offer children the opportunity to encounter animals in their natural environment and in real life situations. We can help you to plan a programme of activities which will link with the national curriculum life processes, living and growing. Children can hold some of our smaller animals and learn about their environment, see where milk comes from when hand milking our cow and help to bottle feed our calves.
We will work with you to offer a programme of activities which include:
In Touch with Animals
Hold and stroke some of the farm’s smaller animals and learn about their environment, feeding habits and behaviour. Animals include rabbits and guinea pigs and also chicks and pygmy goats (depending on the season)
Bottle Feeding the Calves
Have a go at bottle feeding the calves. This activity is thoroughly enjoyed by children of all ages. See how quickly they guzzle their milk!
Hand Milk the Cow
See first hand where milk comes from and have a go hand milking our friendly cow too (depending on how many children are in your school)
Provided with a riding hat and accompanied by our experienced leisure farm staff you can take a ride around our yard on one of our
See some of our larger animals in the animal barn. We have goats, calves, pigs, a cow, llamas, ponies, horses & donkeys.
Depending on the season the children may be able to see eggs ready to hatch in the incubators and small chicks which may have recently hatched.
Hand washing facilities with anti bacterial soap are provided by the entrance to the animal barn and in the ‘In Touch with Animals’ area.
We are able to offer younger children opportunities to reach early learning goals, gaining knowledge and understanding of the world. Children can discover and learn about animals in their natural environment.
