Pupils will have the opportunity to experience and enjoy the things that a working farm can offer, giving them the knowledge to progress further life skills along with a greater understanding and knowledge of where their food comes from. Pupils will have the opportunity to assist in lambing season, helping feed and clean out a wide variety of farm animals ranging from baby calves, cows, pigs, lambs, sheep, chicks, chickens to turkeys. Pupils get to assist in general maintenance around the farm; putting up fences, clearing trees, checking soil quality, stacking bales of hay, assisting move cattle and sheep from one part of the farm to another having to communicate and work as a team in getting these tasks complete whilst keeping themselves and the animals safe.
As a treat at the end of the year the pupils will have the chance to make their own beef burgers from the meat farmed on the farm, then cook their beef burger on a barbeque down by the farm pond whilst fishing!! (weather permitting of course!) Other end of term treats range from making Christmas cookies and table decorations and of course Treacle Tart and carving a pumpkin at Halloween!
