Educational visits

Sometimes there is no better way to learn than getting out of the classroom and giving children and young adults a real-life working farm experience. We have experience in hosting educational visits, ranging from nursery and pre-school days out to more structured curriculum-linked options for older pupils, covering a range of topics.

Choose from

Life cycles: Lambing time The chicken and the egg.
Geography:  Up on the Downs.

We have also organised days for students at both A-level and degree level, covering subjects such as business management, farm diversification and retail marketing and branding.

Our school and nursery visits are competitively priced, allowing one free adult for every paying child to help ensure maximum supervision during your day out. Our packages for older students are flexible, and we are happy to work with you and your requirements.

To find out more, or to make a booking and arrange your pre-visit/risk assessment, please email the office on, or call 01273 488450.
