Our Farm and Your School Camp Experience
The future is exciting with more and more schools wanting children to have genuine and real experiences, a kind of back to earth experience.
The property sits near the center of where European agricultural development began, we share this and other stories dating from 1822 when the farm was established. Our stories are central to the experience.
Our aim is to teach how the need for food and water security, and the ability of grazing animals to sequester carbon in our soil as well as the role farming can have in protecting our environment. The property is a working farm, we produce beef and sheep and we integrate education into our narrative, taking you on a journey
Blair Briggs became the Managing Director in 2007 along with his wife, Jacqui.
Although the business had been operating for 20 years it had run out of energy and ideas. Blair and Jacqui installed a new team of people that shared their passion for mixing farming and hospitality.
Jacqui's experience at the farm is very broad her first goal after taking over was to improve the lot of the horses.
She had been a student of natural Horsemanship for many years. Jacqui trained to become a Parelli Professional Instructor a goal she achieved in 2013..
