Farm Visit Project – would you like to take part?
The farm on which we have done much off our filming is now going to offer farm visits for schools and we will be working closely with them to provide a topic for the visiting schools to follow which will incorporate a visit to the farm and keep in touch with life of the farm via our regular videos
