**New Prices for 2019**
Nore Valley Park began the School Incubator Project in 2014, proving to be tremendously popular, we have now provided our educational program to over 120 schools. Each year we anticipate there to be high demand, so early booking is strongly advised.
The School Incubator Project is a simple 4-5 week process. An incubator will be delivered to the school with seven eggs laid on our farm, and we will deliver an educational talk to the students about the development and life cycle of a chicken and the hatching process. We deliver the talk to the whole school, and can tailor it for different age groups – everything from pre-school to Secondary level.
We will come out to check the eggs and make sure everything is okay during the incubation process, and will be on call 24/7. It is a great chance for students to learn about the life cycle of chickens and take ownership over the eggs and chicks once they have hatched.
The project does have a fee starting from €200, which covers at least three school visits, the educational talk, insurance and equipment costs. This fee is based on the distance from our farm to your school in order to make it as fair as possible for each school.
For schools within 50 km radius of the farm we charge €200, for schools 51-80 km away we charge €225, for schools 81-120 km away we charge €250 and for schools more than 120 km away we charge €275.
* For pricing, we use Google Maps to calculate the fastest route from our farm to your school, and determine cost according to the kilometre distance on the fastest route. *
By taking part in our School Incubator Project, we offer schools a discount on guided school tours of the farm, or a discount on our Mobile Farm van.
