The Little Explorer's Club - farm tours
Feel like connecting your kids back to nature? Want to learn about organic farming and the adventure that goes with it?
We have an initiative called "The Little Explorer's Club"
We take a group of 10 - 30 of all ages, guiding them through our certified organic estate. We teach children about food security, where their food comes from, and the principles of organic farming. This is our contribution to the Ecoschool movement.
Some highlights of the tour include:
- teaching children how to forage for their own edible weeds and seasonal produce
- visiting our high care food processing facility to learn about heath and hygiene
- feeding our tilapia fish and learning about the ecology of our dam
You will end the tour off eating your snacks and drinks under our 25 year old Liquid Amber trees.
"This club is all about fun, getting dirty and learning."
