Making your farm visit a success

Farm visits case studies

Jump to resources

These case studies give a flavour of the variety of educational activities that take place on farms around the country, and show how farm visits benefit pupils and teachers.


Introduction

What kinds of educational activities take place at farms?             

What educational activities do different kinds of farms offer?

How can farm visits be beneficial for pupils and their teachers?

The case studies presented here provide answers to these questions. They give a flavour of the variety of educational activities that take place on farms around the country. This includes activities:
• for different age groups/educational needs (early years, primary school, secondary school and special school)
• with different learning aims (curriculum learning, experiential learning, vocational learning, personal development and learning about sustainability)
• at different kinds of farms (working farms, open farms, city farms, residential farms and school/college farms).

It is hoped that that these case studies will be helpful and stimulating for teachers and farm educators interested in making the most of farms as environments for learning.
