Passionate about educating future generations about all aspects of farming, food and the countryside

We are dedicated to ensuring children understand where food comes from and how it’s produced, which in turn encourages healthy eating. We also promote learning outside of the classroom which provides the opportunity to be active and connect with nature. We offer a range of year-round educational events, shows and courses which you can find more about below.


We support teachers and schools across Yorkshire through a variety of means. Take a look below at the free training courses we offer, apply for a grant for your school or get ideas for lesson planning through the resource links.
