Hi there, you visited my Sons school yesterday Discovery school and I just wanted to contact you to thank you for the wonderful experience he had. My son is very frightened of dogs and has been for some time now. His fear got so bad that last summer we became virtually stuck indoors as parks and beaches became places that were too stressful for him to visit. However despite this I know he was able to stroke your dog that came with you and even take hold of the lead. This was a huge step forward for him and for us as a family and just wanted to thank you for encouraging him to interact with the animals, especially your dog. Im hoping that this is the first step in him starting to overcome his fear and hope we can now build on his positive experience yesterday and make some progress this year. Many thanks again, best regards Michelle Safa Mum to Jacob, aged 7.
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely experience we had when you came to visit us at Northfleet and Gravesend . The clients had such a lovely morning and for many it bought back lots of happy memories. For some of the clients, just the chance to stroke Teasel or to cuddle the rabbits was so enjoyable.
This is a worthwhile activity that can benefit many older people who no longer have pets of their own, Our clients were talking about this for days after, and when shown the pictures, relived those moments over again. It was a joy to see.
Many thanks and look forward to seeing you again

Dear James and Abby,
FEEDING THE 5000 EVENT- We were asked to take 4 Kune Kune Pigs up to Trafalgar Square for Friends of the Earth to promote food wastage in the UK, 5000 people were given free lunch from all the food including wonky carrots which is normally thrown away..
Hi James and Abby,
Just a quick email to say thank you so much for supplying the pigs and being brilliant on Friday, I thought the event went fantastically and there’s been lots of media coverage! I will send you some photos when we get them back from team members.

Beaver Green school -This was a 2 day visit covering all 19 classes!
I just wanted to email to say thank you so much for organising the mobile farm over the last couple of days. My class went today and LOVED it! The people running it were so good with the children and the children just loved finding out about the animals and being able to stroke and hold them.
Dear James and Tom,
Thank you for such an exciting day! The children loved
seeing the animals and learning more about them. The chicken
laying the egg was the icing on the cake for us all. We will
definitely book you again next year.
Many thanks and kind regards

Abby and everyone else,
I would just like to say thank you again for coming to the nursery. It was a throughly enjoyable day, loved by the children, staff and parents. We would definatly recommend you to other nurseries, and the setting up and cleaning up afterwards was fantastic.

Dear James and Abby- Thank you for such a fantastic day, we thought it would be good for KS1 children to meet the farm animals but we didn’t realise how exciting and inspiring the experience would be! The teachers all said how impressed they were with your preparation and age- appropriate way you responded to the children’s questions. Thank you for providing such an inspirational experience! We have recommended you to the junior department so hope to see you at Beaver Green again soon!

Dear James and Abby
Just a note to thank you so much for a wonderful time on Saturday- the children all loved their hands on experiences- even those children who normally are not tactile at all! Thankyou so much for a lovely day.

‘Fantastic! the best attraction we have ever had at the school, Thank you so much!’

Oakfield School, Dartford
Thank you very much for your visit. The children and adults, especially Mr Ratcliffe, enjoyed the opportunity to touch and feed the animals.
The experience covered so many different aspects of the children’s curriculum – the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum.
It is very expensive to take children on a coach to visit the farm so the opportunity for the farm to come to them is fantastic.
A most enjoyable learning experience for all the children. They continue to talk about it.
Once again thank you.
Assistant Headteacher, Oakfield Community Primary School
