Schools & Universities

We work in partnership with local schools, colleges and universities to champion sustainable development and try to deliver a hands-on farming experience for all our visitors.

Farm Tours, guided walks and practical demonstration days are available for groups on request and Andy can tailor content accordingly.

Throughout the year we host a number of residential events for school children and university students.  The Farm is a fantastic base for Dartmoor based geography and biology field trips and a number of schools run ‘Activity Weeks’ from the farm where students have the opportunity to learn new skills and activities such as caving, kayaking, climbing and abseiling.  Ludgrove, Swanbourne and Holmewood Preparatory Schools bring young visitors to stay with us on a regular basis and the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth mean we also welcome the higher education fraternity too.
