#RomaniaAutentica - Cornăţel School Farm
During the 7-10 May 2015 period, I went to find out #RomaniaAutentica: Marginimea Sibiului and Valea Hartibaciului together with friends and a very beautiful group of travelers.
One day, we had the joy of discovering a "amusement park" a little different. I was visiting Cornăţel School Farm. On Hârtibaciului Valley, just 14 km from the city of Sibiu, you can discover the beauties of life on the farm. On an area of 40 hectares, a school farm has been set up where the little ones, but also the children in us, can discover the world of poultry. Here you can find goats, cows, pigs, donkeys, horses, ponies, chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits and even a deer.
Also at Cornăţel School Farm you can practice various fun and educational activities: tractor rides, pedal go-karts, "Jumping Pillaw" jumping pillow with an area of 100sqm, inflatable climbing wall (climbing wall with sockets and safety systems). The little ones can ride ponies.
As you pass the threshold of the farm, you will feel that you have stepped into another world, but in a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. The Cornăţel School Farm is for all ages, but especially for children. School camps and activities for children from 3 to 5 years (Piticot) and 6-12 years (Adventure) can be organized.
The rates are not high, and below you have the price list and the internal order.
Within the complex there is also a small terrace and bistro. You can serve a refreshment, something to snack on, you can rest after a forceful tour of the farm.
The farm has an interesting story and I'll tell you briefly. The Cornăţel School Farm is sponsored by a family. Initially it was intended to be a riding center for children in the family. The old stables in Cornăţel were bought, refurbished and brought. But the farm began to grow and be populated with all kinds of poultry and beyond. Most of them are animals rescued from less favorable environments for them. Beaten, abandoned, hungry and tormented animals all found a warm and welcoming place at the Cornăţel School Farm. Now they are doing well, they are well taken care of, they have food and a roof. And from a simple riding center, it became a real farm.
