With our Farmer for the day experience, there’s no script – it’s an authentic experience that will be different for each visit, based on what’s happening on the farm at the time, and led by the seasons.

On one of our recent Farmer for the Day experiences in April, our lucky apprentices for the day got to witness the birth of 2 kids and a calf – a pretty unique day out!
