The Little Agrarian has been created to instill in our future generations an appreciation of where their food comes from and how it gets from the paddock to their plates.

It is an opportunity for children to see, smell, touch and taste their way around the farm, gardens and kitchen, to fully appreciate the flavour of real food - food grown without chemicals and allowed to mature and ripen within its natural timeframe.

The day will include a tour of the vegetable gardens and orchards, tasting different heirloom vegetables and fruit while harvesting produce from the garden. Children will collect chicken eggs and feed our rare-breed pigs as well as milk one of our goats. They will then return to the kitchen to cook themselves lunch from the gathered produce.

Dietary restrictions and allergies

We are unable to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies for this class.

For the Parents

While your little agrarians are busy on the farm we recommend passing the time in nearby New Norfolk which offers an array of amazing antique stores including our very favourite, The Drill Hall Emporium and their new vintage letterpress store, Flywheel. Have a quick bite to eat at New Norfolk’s “Cheeky Little Place” café or bring your own picnic and head out to the Salmon Ponds.

How often will The Little Agrarian class be held?

We aim to hold The Little Agrarian classes on certain weekdays during the Tasmanian school holidays or if you have a private group of 8 we can add a class subject to availability.
