Farming Technology Experience, Ballacricket Dairy Farm description
Children (and their grown ups) are invited to experience a fun and informative afternoon out at Ballacricket Farm, where they will discover the new and exciting technology used in farming in the Isle of Man. This is a FREE event, all we ask is for a small donation on the day.
Ballacricket is a working dairy farm in Ronague, which has been run by the Masson family for over three generations.
If your child would enjoy a tour of the farm, a chance to meet some of the animals and to learn more about the fascinating technology used on the farm itself, then they’ll love this event.
Chaperoned by the Love Tech volunteers and farm staff, your children will have two fun-filled hours to explore the site and experience first-hand, the innovation happening right here in the Island’s farming community.
