Frogmary Green Farm is a 600 acre arable farm on the outskirts of South Petherton close to the A303. The farm rears broiler chicken and grows grass, cereals and maize for an onsite Anaerobic Digestor. The farmers, Nick and Claire Bragg, have huge respect for the natural environment and are working hard to protect and enhance it:
‘We believe that a huge part of our job as farmers is to help people understand where their food comes from and to break down some of the barriers that exist between producers and consumers although our greatest emphasis is on children’s education through our school visits.’ Nick and Claire Bragg
More than 2,000 children have visited the farm over the past three years and the farm has close links with the local primary and infant schools. Visits are tailored to school requirements and can include chickens, crops, renewables, gardening and wildlife areas.
