Barnyard Babies is always a popular visitor to schools, preschools and day care centres throughout South East Queensland

A visit from Barnyard Babies gives children the chance to meet, feed and pet a range of animals including sheep, lambs, calves, goats, kids, piglets, and chicks.

We provide a 45-minute interactive presentation that is both engaging and inclusive.

The farmer not only encourages the children to reflect on the importance of farm animals with respect to food and textile production, but also provides a fully ‘hands on’ experience by encouraging them to handle and feed the animals.

Farming is a vital part of Australia and it’s heritage. A visit from Barnyard Babies enables children, who may not otherwise have the chance, to be educated about farm animals and to gain an awareness of their importance both economically and culturally.
