Fun Field Trips for Schools


School visits to the farm
"...fun field trips..."

We have had over ten years experience of hosting day trips for local schools and are able to offer schoolchildren real "hands on" experience with farming and the countryside

As well as being a demonstration site for both the Soil Association and the Westcountry Rivers Trust we have a close working relationship with such organisations as English Nature, the RSBP, the Environment Agency, and the Cornwall Wildlife Trust

Past school visits have incorporated

  • poultry feeding
  • pond dipping
  • sheep shearing
  • cow weighing
  • nature trail & trailer ride!

We are ideally placed to offer your school a field trip that would cover a wide range of elements from the National Curriculum, including Geography, Science, PSHE and Citizenship

The days are also great fun and the farm gives the children a real feel of space and freedom in a very safe environment


  • Research shows that children learn best through real life experiences. Taking learning beyond the classroom walls makes learning more memorable and appeals to different learning styles.
  • Learning outside the classroom is known to contribute significantly to raising standards & improving pupils' personal, social & emotional development. It also contributes to the quality and depth of learning.
  • Learning outside the classroom enables children to interact in new ways with their peers and adults, improving relationships between teachers and pupils, particularly with those students who are hard to reach in the classroom environment.
  • OFSTED says that learning outside the classroom is crucial to delivering a broad and balanced curriculum.
