The Team at Heath Farm have always been passionate about education and people learning where food comes from, but also about the land that feeds us.
With our already set up Heath Farm school, Coming the beginning of 2018…. We will be offering fun, practical pre bookable sessions for under12’s taking place throughout the year (dates and more info to be announced nearer the time) taking place on our real working livestock farm.
The session will be hands on, fun, practical and we will also be working with the current curriculum to help link to their education at school.
The sessions will include:
How to care for animals,(Animal Welfare)
How to work as a team,
How we can look after our environment
How we work with it to produce the food we eat (where are food comes from.)
We will be covering the arable as well as the livestock side to show field to fork.
Through doing Open Farm Sunday, Open lambing days to raise money for Cancer research UK, to opening our farm up to schools. We have shown how passionate we are about showing and educating people where food comes from and why we do what we do.
We are incredibly proud of our work experience students. Our most resent has just been offered a place at Harper Adams University to study a BSc in Animal Behaviour & Welfare. Leah has been with us nearly a year, and we are incredibly proud how far she has come, and through working with us she has decided to pursue her degree…..she has grown from strength to strength and become a member of the team…..we will miss you Leah greatly when you go to Uni.
With formal teaching qualifications and Agricultural degrees behind us, we hope we can offer something special.
