A business at the farm

A Business at the Farm is an educational resource for AS and GCSE Business studies students. It provides the opportunity to discover what it could be like to manage a farming business. Faced with real-life choices and challenges, students’ decisions could lead to the business being successful or failing. Although the farm and characters are fictitious, the situation the students find themselves in are all too real for farming today.
