Last week, a group of school children came to Church Farm to explore the farm and see where their food comes from. The first part of their day consisted of a tractor-trailer ride; we all piled in to a trailer and were driven around the farm by the farm manager. It was a great day; the Church Farm team were ready to answer any questions the children had (including what would happen if they fell down a badger set, to whether pigs go to hospital to give birth) and we stopped at various places around the farm to explain the work we do here. Afterwards, the children were given bags of animal feed and were free to explore the farm at their leisure. We really enjoyed having the children visit and look forward to welcoming other school trips here soon – after all, it’s not often we get the chance to be driven around in a trailer!
