Dear Teachers and Administrators
We would like to invite you and your students to our Animal Attraction Business in the County of Newell. White Barn Fun Farm is a petting farm located just west of Brooks in the Cassils Community. We are an active hobby farm and have opened our gates for school tours for all ages.
WBFF provides a farm tour where kids pet and feed friendly farm animals, all while learning about the different animals farmed here in Alberta. For example, students learn about animals and their life cycles and purposes in agriculture, the difference between a llama and an alpaca, what is a heifer and a bull calf, how to tell what color of egg a chicken lays, that cows only have bottom teeth etc.
We have rabbits for children to hold, sheep to pet, goats to feed, mini donkeys to brush, pigs to observe and more. The tour is very interactive, safe and engaging. White Barn Fun Farm will work with teachers to accommodate their curriculum throughout the tour. We can accommodate up to 44 students per field trip. Arrangements can be made to accommodate larger class sizes.
White Barn charges $10 per student that includes an ice cream, animal feed and a tractor pulled hay ride. Teachers, EA's, supervisors and volunteers are free. We can invoice your school before or after the field trip. The average tour is just over an hour; however, we will schedule 2-hour blocks for school tours, that way students can have a snack or lunch. We are suggesting students arrive on the farm for 9:30am and stay until 11:30a.m. If another time works better for your class we can certainly accommodate.
White Barn Fun Farm is fully insured and permitted. We have easy access to the yard for buses and have a large parking area. There is an on-site outhouse, a hand washing station and grassy area for students to eat lunch. We ask that students wear closed toe footwear, a hat and bring a water bottle. Apply sunscreen and bug spray before arriving. Please dress for the weather as a majority of the tour is outdoors. We have a gift shop with items for sale for $10 and under.
Please keep us in mind as you plan for field trips for spring 2021. Contact us through Facebook, email or phone to find out more information and to discuss details and or to book a tour.
