We were delighted to welcome two groups, Cabin Club (morning) and Little Oaks (afternoon) from Drumcree Community Centre to Long Meadow Farm.
There was such excitement as the children walked through the orchard on a fairy trail mission to where our orchard fairies live and work.
They also enjoyed an orchard tractor ride, arts and crafts, chalk walk drawings, games and bubbles.
It was a very enjoyable experience for both children and staff.
Please contact us should you be interested in a visit to Long Meadow Farm.
