Farm and school visits
Throughout the year, Law Farming is delighted to host a wide variety of groups interested in our farms and environmental work. We use the Black Barn for introductory talks and refreshments. Therfield Heath, the Thrift woodlands and various other habitats are within walking distance.
Law Farming hosts numerous school groups with insightful visits that can bring a curriculum to life. We believe it is important to give children an introduction to how and where their food is grown.
Our visits give pupils the opportunity to learn about the lifecycles and seasons that determine crop and food production. We also hope students gain an understanding of the importance of farming in the maintenance of the landscape and environment. During a visit, pupils can look at soil profiles, take farm walks, identify trees and invertebrates, view machinery and take a close up look at the sheep farming year. Children can also use the kitchen to make something edible from some farm produce.
We are a certified CEVAS (Countryside Education Visits Accreditation Scheme) farm and receive year-round visits from many local schools from Reception, KS1 and KS2. If you are a teacher and would like to find out more about school farm visits, please go to Leaf Education.
