Educational Visits

We hold a number of events each year specifically for primary school groups to lean more about where their food comes from. These always involve interactive learning in a fun environment. Find out more about what we offer below.

Apple Day

October 2022 – Date TBC

Every year we invite schools to come and visit our orchard at the Great Yorkshire Showground in October to celebrate National Apple Day. We have a selection of Yorkshire Heritage Trees including the following varieties Yorkshire Beauty, Grandpa Buxton and even Dog’s Snout!

Children take part in a juicing workshop as well as preparing a baked apple to take home and bake for their pudding that night.

Spaces are limited to 30 children per school and the event is suitable for KS1 & KS2 groups.

Farm to Fork visit

Farm to Fork Farm Visits

Every year we organise school visits to local farms so children can experience the farm to fork journey first hand.

During their farm visit, they will experience interactive field to fork workshops and how this food can be incorporated into daily meals. Depending on the farm facilities the children are often provided with a delicious, locally produced meal to finish their visit.

To express interest for your class to join us for a farm visit please email
