Why Farming Matters Primary

Food and farming are topics of great importance to all our lives but, even more significantly, they will involve challenges that children will have to face as they become the consumers, parents, politicians, leaders, and thinkers of the future. They will be confronted with the challenge of feeding more than nine billion people on the planet by 2050. It’s no wonder we think that farming is ‘the biggest job on earth’. This resource contains activities linked to the curriculum to encourage pupils to start investigating why farming matters.
