Open Farm School Days

Visiting a working farm can be hugely beneficial for children of all ages. From providing a stimulating, hands-on experience for Early Years right through to a practical demonstration of some career options for post 16s, there is something for everyone. Farms can be a great place for children to learn about the provenance of their food and to be a theme for studying core curriculum subjects such as maths, English, art and much more.
Open Farm School Days run alongside the annual Open Farm Sunday on 10th June 2018. Throughout June, farms open their gates and host educational visits for children to learn about how their food is grown, where it comes from and meeting the farmers who grow it.
