This farm visit has been curated to enable children to see and understand the connects of the natural world and importance of natural farming. The farm is spread over 10 acres and grows a variety of produce and houses A2 type cows. A variety of produce in fruits, greens, few vegetables, root produce and banana are grown. Native cow manure and urine is used as a fertilizer and immune booster to the plants. All of the cow fodder is also grown organically in the farm. Honey Bees are kept to allow for natural pollination.
Each batch of students will be divided into smaller groups and guided into different parts of the farm to engage in specific subjects. Throughout their time at the farm the children are encouraged to engage all five senses to experience this positive environment. Children will have opportunity to touch & pet the cows and spend some time with them.
