A different type of education


We have regular groups on farm including agricultural students from schools and universities, children with behavioural issues and those with poor mental health.

 

We also provide practical experience for schools offering vocational qualifications in agriculture and animal care.

We have over 100 visits a year from schools and community groups. With a qualified teacher on staff we tailor-make visits to your needs.

 

Try our Field-to-Fork workshops, woodland activities and pond dipping: we can structure your visits to tie in with your learning objectives.

 

We also have a catering kitchen which offers children the chance to learn cooking skills and enjoy eating what they've made.
