Here’s what one of our 2013 visitors had to say:
Tranmere Park Primary School had a fantastic two days at Cannon Hall Farm. The organisation before and during the trip was exemplary and enabled both children and adults to really enjoy the trip. The guided tours were very informative and helped the children gain an insight in to a working farm and the care given to the animals on a daily basis.
The new adventure playgrounds the children thoroughly enjoyed and it was very handy having so many hand washing facilities around the farm. We definitely will be back!
