School Tours at Rumley’s Open Farm Cork

School Tours at Rumley’s Open Farm Cork offer a fun and educational environment for Irish school children.

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:

Day Plan – Junior Infants to 1st Class

  • 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
