Letters from satisfied visitors:

Dear Jackie,

I recently took my Junior Infant class to your farm for their first school tour. I am emailing you to thank you and your staff for a wonderful day. It was one of the best farm school tours I have been on and the children in my class really enjoyed their experience. The hands-on approach was fantastic as well as the kind & professional manner of your staff : Serena, Charlotte and Trina (a special thanks to Trina for her lovely way with the group of children I was with on the day).

I thoroughly enjoyed myself (as did the children!) and I will be recommending your farm for future visits.

Thank you again & best wishes for the future.
Regards,

Dear Jackie and Staff,

Wow, what a day! We would like to say a HUGE thank you for the best school tour ever. We have so many memories from our day out with you. Your family and staff were so warm and welcoming. The location was amazing. The weather was not on our side that day, as it not just rained, but poured the entire day, but it made no difference whatsoever. The tour just kept getting better. We loved everything – the small animals, the selection of toys, the combine harvester, the old farm house, the play area, the sheltered picnic area, the delicious homemade brown bread, the exciting tractor ride, and the chance to touch, feed and hold all of the friendly farm animals. We cannot say enough positive things about STONEBROOK PET FARM. You will definitely be seeing the children and parents from Happy Feet Early Learning Centre in Rathcoole again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The staff and children from Happy Feet Preschool in Rathcoole, Co. Dublin.
