Farm Visits for School Groups

Learning about farming & countryside issues
farm carrot icon

Whilst having fun is part of any trip, as a teacher you also need to be thinking about what you want your class to take away from the experience. A clear set of learning objectives will make sure your children do not miss out on getting the most from their time at the farm, while also making your job of follow-up work when you are back in the classroom much easier.

Farming

A farm visit will allow pupils to better understand the ways in which farms operate, but there are many additional topics and subjects that you can build upon to make the most of your time. Some of the more popular topics that schools choose to study while visiting a farm include the life cycles of plants and animals, the farm through the seasons, our relationship with the foods we eat, and food miles. Take a look at our food technology section for more ideas.

The Natural Environment

As well as providing our food, farms and farmers are custodians of the countryside, and play a very important role in the management of our country’s land and natural resources. Topics you may choose to study include countryside management, sustainable development, diversification, and the economies and politics of agriculture.
