Every year thousands of Irish teenagers got back to their roots here at Causey Farm – this is a brilliant programme for team-building and fun, and is suitable for all secondary school classes especially Transition years.
They all really love getting down to basics, eating their own home-made bread after a busy day on the farm and bog.
We can offer 2 different programmes, half day and full day including lunch, see below:
Programme A: Visit Within the School Day
Meet the Farm Animals
cattle, hens, geese, pigs, Connemara ponies, goats and donkeys.
Each student plays a traditional bodhrán and learns to accompany the different rhythms of traditional Irish music including jigs, polkas and reels.
Make Soda Bread
Everyone makes their own brown bread and we eat it later with butter and jam and drinks.
A Causey favourite, everyone just loves the feel of the bog between the toes and creates some of the best memories ever
Programme B: Extended Team Building Including Lunch
We offer long team-building days here at the farm which includes the above activities from Programme A along with the following activities.
The Programme normally lasts from around 10 Am to 6 PM
The pizzas make a delicious lunch served with home-made wedges and chocolate brownies with chocolate sauce and ice cream for dessert
We will divide each class into three teams and each group will compete against the clock to guide the sheep through a course.
Team Building Challenges
A number of socially distanced activities which give opportunities for communication and getting to know other group members.
We have a championship between teams of four on the pond – its a great way to clean off the worst of the mud after the bog too!
