Bowland Farm Animal Experiences

Chicken Hatching Programmes, Farmyard and Reptile Experiences for schools

If you’re looking for something different yet educational for your school then a Bowland Farm ‘Animal Experience’ may be the ideal event. We have 3 exciting and innovative experiences that bring the farm and other animals right into the heart of your school. Chicken Hatching Programmes, Mobile Farmyard Experience and our NEW Reptile Experience. Children get a great deal from interacting and learning about animals as they get the chance to get up close and personal and observe nature at its best.
