School Tours

It has been a dream of mine for many years to bring children onto my farm and give them a chance to see how food is produced from vegetables, eggs, chicken to the various different types of meat.

I strongly believe if you show children how real natural food is grown it is something that will stay with them forever.

With this philosophy in mind I have developed 3 programs that will appeal to both younger and older children where they not only get to play with the animals but to see how a working farm is run. It is also a program where teachers will learn a lot too and be able to bring some real experiences and exercises back to the class room.

Our 3 Programs are as follows:

Infants to 1st Class

8/child
  • Visit the Pet Farm where the children can get to hold and feed the animals
  • Guided Tractor Tour of the Farm tailored to younger children
  • See a cow being milked

How Do I Book?

Phone us on 021 488 5122 to book in, or complete the form opposite or email us at info@rumleysfarm.ie.

When do we need to book?

We do have limited availability and we operate on a first come first served basis, so to avoid disappointment, please book early.

What time do we have to be there?

Programs Begin at 10am and last until 1.30pm to allow you adequate time to get here and get back for normal school closing time.

If these times do not suit just let us know when you are booking on 021 488 5122 and we can arrange an alternative time.

What if it rains?

We have lots of activities which will be successful regardless of the weather including our indoor play area which is set up for lunches should the need arise.
Our farm tour takes place in a covered trailer to make it weather proof.

Where is the Farm?

The farm is located about 5 miles from Cork on the Bandon Road, just beyond the viaduct. Directions and a location map are available here.

Are there refreshments available for teachers?

Yes we have complimentary tea/coffee and scone available for teachers in our café.

Are you Insured?

Yes we are fully insured for all activities.

Do You Have a Shop?

Yes, but it is optional, and at the discretion of the teacher, just let our leaders know when you arrive whether you want the children to know about the shop or not. A suggested amount of pocket money needed is €3 – €5.

How Will We Know We’ll Get Back to School on Time?

That is no problem, just let your leaders know when you arrive what time you need to be back on the bus and our leaders will make sure the class gets to all the activities in the time you have, and will make sure the children have a great time.
