School Tours In Waterford? Visit Our Heritage Farm
There are lots of things for children to do on our farm. These include:
- Demonstrations of pot oven bread making, griddle scones and butter making.
- Feeding our farmyard friends including Hens, Calves and Lambs.
- Hand milk Buttercup the cow.
- Gathering eggs.
- Walk to the well.
- Turf Stacking.
- Wellie throwing competition.
- Treasure Hunt.
- School tours are available as Gaelige.
These are a sample of what the children can do. But a programme can be tailor made to a teachers specific requirements e.g. a teacher was teaching the poem "the old woman of the road" and brought her class in order that children could experience what life was like for that woman.
What They Say About Us
One of the aims of the Revised Primary School Curriculum for SESE states "that the child should be enabled to explore features of the local environment e.g. old house" We are fortunate in Co. Waterford to have an outstanding venue go visit which is ideally suited to achieving this aim. A trip to Nells Farmhouse is a wonderful experience for children from a rural or urban school. I took my 3rd and 4th class and it was most enjoyable for the children. They saw Daisy being hand milked, and at lunch time they ate the Pot oven bread baked over the open fire during the visit. This was a wonderful trip which I would highly recommend.
