At Graveley Fruit Farm we offer a special birthday treat for children between the ages of 3 to 8 yrs during June and July. The basic format is as follows;
Parents and children meet at the cafe. Once all the children have arrived they set of on a guided walk down to the tunnels and pick a punnet of fruit. Every child will be able to pick a punnet of fruit to take home with them. This is then followed by an opportunity to feed the pigs. Then all the party walks down to the orchard for the picnic tea which is included.
After the tea there is an adventurous tractor and trailer ride, which will take you all the way back to the cafe. Here the birthday child will be able to blow out the candles on their cake and we will sing happy birthday. An ideal opportunity for some lovely photos. This is followed by free play on the playground and collection of children by the parents.
We will provide a host for your party. The minimum number of children to attend is 10 and the maximum is 20. Please be aware that for each 6 children there needs to be one accompanying adult.
Prices are £12.50 per child, goodie bags can be provided at an additional cost of £3 per child.
We can cater for school parties of up to 75 children. The visit consists of picking some fruit with a short topical talk and explanation of how the fruit is grown. Then there is an opportunity to feed the pet pigs and have a tractor and trailer ride. It is an ideal chance to let children see where their food comes from and to get hands on experience of picking fruit. The visit is suitable for years 1, 2, 3 and 4.
