Magdalen is an environmental educational charity set on 132 acres of organic farmland. Based on the Dorset/Somerset borders yet only a few miles from the Jurassic Coast the farm provides a diverse landscape to provide the ideal location for a residential school trip or day visit.
It is our aim to encourage as many people as possible to learn about their environment through hands-on experiences.
We offer a variety of activities to suit all ages and abilities and offer bespoke programmes which can be tailored to suit the curriculum, specific topics and themes or just for fun. We have a wide range of activities including getting hands on with our animals, picking and tasting our fruit and veg, team building exercises, pond dipping and campfires under the stars.
