and the Countryside
We hold a number of events each year specifically for primary schools, along with competitions and discounted entry to the Great Yorkshire Show. Find out more about what we offer below.
W/c 25th January 2021
We invite schools to enter our Farmhouse Breakfast competition to celebrate Breakfast Week. Lucky victors will have the opportunity to take part in a school visit to a working farm.
During their farm visit, children will experience interactive field to fork workshops and will learn all about food that can be incorporated into the most important meal of the day. A delicious locally produced breakfast is then provided for all to enjoy. Find more details on the competitions page.
October 2021 – Date TBC
