School incursions - We will come to you!

Here at the Hahndorf Farm Barn, we have been providing a successful excursion program for school children for over 10 years! And now we can come to you, providing incursions with a hands-on approach to learning about farming and agriculture - and you can pat some super cute animals too!

Specifically tailored to Year 6 & 7 students, we can also tailor a program to your learning area and year level.
