Go Back
A New Venture

In early 2012 we started with an idea, that idea was to educate our own children to know and understand where the food they eat comes from, but little did we know that this would quickly grow into something bigger.

Later in 2012, we started our journey into mainstream education offering to show a small amount of animals to children in both nurseries and infants schools.

In 2014 we began to offer the same experience to secondary school education with a growing variety of animals.

In early 2016 we partnered with Sawtry Academy, a small in-school provision for
students who struggle with mainstream education to offer an Animal Relaxation
Experience and an ASDAN Animal Care qualification to children aged 11-16yrs.

Furthermore, in 2016, we also partnered with The Beehive to provide the education provision for the Animal Care Course for students unable to complete mainstream education. The students have a wide range of special requirements and we are really enjoying teaching them and seeing their progress both academically and personally.

In 2017, we visited over 100 schools nationwide, various care homes and disability centres, spreading the happiness and enjoyment of our animals with all those that wanted it.

In 2018, a little later than planned, we now have partnerships with 6 SEN schools
within Northamptonshire and have now widened our area to include Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
