We believe that a huge part of our job as farmers is to help people understand where their food comes from and to break down some of the barriers that exist between producers and consumers. Although our greatest emphasis is on children’s education through our school visits, we want people of all ages to visit us and find out more .
Please contact us so we can discuss your requirements.
We have welcomed:
- Young Farmers’ Clubs, as well as individual farmers
- Government Ministers
- Environment Agency technical advisers and officers
- NFU advisors
- Rural business students
- Community groups
Book a visit
We don’t have a ‘typical’ visit because we like to tailor the event to the needs of the visiting group. Visits to Frogmary Green Farm can include chickens, potatoes and/or our wildlife areas.
Please contact us so we can discuss your particular requirements and arrange a visit to meet your specific needs.
More than 1,000 children have visited the farm over the past two years and we have close links with our local primary school.
- Seeds and growth
- Food labelling
- Chicken & Egg
We are CRB accredited and carry out full risk assesments before your visit.
