School Farm Visits

There are many ways in which a visit to Craigie’s Farm can enrich the classroom experience:

 

It is the perfect place for students to discover the importance that food comes from a farm, not a supermarket.

Farm visits fit many aspects of 'A Curriculum for Excellence', and are an exciting and efficient way of introducing experiential elements to such a project.

Outlines some of the work that farmers undertake to help manage the land and conserve and protect the ecosystems of different types of rural flora and fauna.

Visits can be tailored to suit all ages from Primary 1 up to University Students.

If a teacher has any specific experiences they wish the children to get from the farm visit, we will happily arrange this. Just let us know the details when completing the booking form below and in conjunction with a RHET Project Co-ordinator, we will tailor the experience to suit.  RHET will also take care of all of the pre-visit risk assessments.

A farm visit will typically take one and a half to three hours.

Once we receive your completed form, it will be forwarded to your local Project Co-ordinator, who will then be in contact to organise your visit.
