Most kids today don’t know how their foods are grown or where they come from because of department and grocery stores where goods are wrapped in plastics ready for consumption. So in a farm stay, children get a chance to learn about where eggs, milk, meat, wool and other produce come from, and how they are grown and cultivated. They get to see and interact with animals that they haven’t seen before, and learn what and how to feed them and how to take good care of farm animals.
Besides interacting with farm animals, other activities can include taking a leisurely bush walk, horse riding, hiking, camping, fishing and boating. Families get to savour delicious meals prepared from produce grown in the farm and bought in the local market.
