Basil & Crew brings the captivating farm experience right to your doorstep, whether it's for a fun-filled school day or a memorable birthday bash at home! It's a unique blend of learning and laughter, plus a cheeky opportunity for our goats to nibble on things they find intriguing!

In 2003, a pivotal report on outdoor education was released by the collaboration of 11 organizations, forming the Real World Learning Partnership. This report emphasized the vital importance of stepping beyond classroom walls for children's learning, regardless of the season. At Basil & Crew, we're all about bridging that essential connection between kids and the natural world. Our mobile farm isn't just about fun; it's a dynamic, hands-on learning environment that's both safe and supervised.

Our visits aren't just entertaining – they're enriching too! We integrate seamlessly with the educational curriculum, aiding in boosting educational engagement and attainment. Children get the chance to interact closely with various animal groups, gaining a tactile and visual understanding that goes beyond books and screens. It's an immersive experience where touching, seeing, and learning about each animal becomes a journey of discovery and joy.

‘Out-of-classroom learning makes a unique contribution to a child’s education and offers many varied benefits to them, not least developing a sense of place and wonder for the world around them. By participating in these experiences throughout their time at school, children learn lessons that complement those taught in the classroom. At the same time, they also have fun and get some exercise in the fresh air. ‘
