‘Children of all ages can benefit enormously from visiting a working farm. From providing a stimulating, hands-on experience for Early Years right through to a practical demonstration of some career options for post 16s, there is something for all ages and abilities. Getting children out into the countryside also has wider community benefits.’
Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF) 2015
The Field to Fork Hub is based at Frogmary Green Farm where they are offering schools the opportunity to visit a working farm to help children develop an understanding of how food is produced and the important role of farmers in producing the food we eat and preserving wildlife.

We recommend that staff read through the materials carefully before making a booking and share with the other adults that will be coming with you on your visit.
