Voluntary Milking System

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

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

With this philosophy in mind we’ve 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.
