Farm Kids Tour
At the beginning of our Farm Kids School Holiday Native Bees Workshop we take the children on an educational and fun tour of The Farm. We educate them about our cows, pigs, bees, chickens, flower crops, herb garden, orchard and veggie crops. We discuss concepts like paddock rotation for the animals, pollination, organic farming, healthy soil and composting and other ethical farming practices. The children get up close and personal with our pet chickens and when available we taste veggies, edible flowers and herbs.

Discussion focus – Fascinating facts about Australia’s native bee population and their importance in the eco system..
