​Bill Quay Community Farm offers guided visits to schools and groups, both on and off site.

Bill Quay Community Farm is committed to delivering quality educational experiences by encouraging children to experience, explore and enjoy the outdoors while learning. We believe experiencing animals, the natural environment, wildlife and how their food is produced is vital to a child's learning and contributes to a fuller understanding of the world around them. ​
