Trinley we are wanting to develop a close working relationship
with the schools in our area. we wish to act as an educational
facility to teach a number of subjects that relate to
the national curriculum. Many farms in the UK have already
linked with schools and they have become very involved
with their adopted farms.
We are extremely
conscious of the fact that most of our younger generation
are unaware of what is going on in the countryside.
It is reported that 1 in 5 school children have not
visited the countryside and experienced nature and realised
where their food comes from. We feel that it is part
of our responsibility as farmers and custodians of our
local area, that we offer free opportunities to our
local community to engage with a local farm.
We are a fully
CEVAS (countryside educational visits accreditation
scheme) compliant farm, which enables us to host school
visits. We have a wide range of facilities including
classroom, kitchen, parking and toilets. Outside our
visitor center, we have woodlands, ponds, wild flower
meadows, wild bird and flower margins, a wormery and
lots of information boards. We also have a visitor’s
trailer which fully complies with current legislation
and we are insured for farm visitors. We grow a wide
range of crops and have rare breed cattle grazing our
stewardship grassland. All in all, we can offer schools
a wonderful opportunity to have access to a wide range
of diverse teaching facilities both accompanied and
unaccompanied at no cost as well as providing all the
benefits of re-engaging our younger generation with
their local countryside.
estate plays host to many adult visitors each year and
include groups from the WI , U3A, CPRE, RSPB, Farmers,
Ramblers and many clubs. We see it as part of our role
as farmers to explain how modern farming methods are
producing the food we eat. Also we explain how we are
making room for wildlife on our estate and how we are
providing habitats for the many species we have to look
Whether it is
a farm walk or a trailer ride the opportunity to see
us in our working environment is not to be missed and
will guarantee to be an enjoyable experience.
