Throughout the year the farm hosts visits from a variety of groups including schools, farming groups from home and abroad, environmental clubs and groups. Visits use the Black Barn for introductory talks and refreshments. Therfield Heath, the Thrift woodlands and other habitats are all within walking distance.
It is important to give children an insight into how and where their food is grown, the life cycles and seasons that determine production and to demonstrate the value of farming in the maintenance of the landscape.
We are a certified CEVAS (Countryside Education Visits Accreditation Scheme) farm and receive year-round visits from many local schools from Reception and years KS1 and KS2.
If you are a teacher and would like to find out more about school farm visits, please go to Farming & Countryside Education (FACE).
