Northwood Farm

Educational visits for schools and other groups on a family run Beef and Sheep farm set in a semi urban location close to Burnley. A CEVAS trained team can deliver visits tailored to your Key Stage and cross curriculum with plenty of time to meet our animals, get hands on and talk to the farmers to discover more about where our food comes from, how we work with the environment and what we do to protect species and habitats. Northwood Farm benefits from excellent transport links being only minutes from Junction 8 of the M65 with parking for minibuses and easy parking close by for coaches
