Schools and Groups
At Lower Drayton Farm we are committed to education – we are CEVAS trained, and able to demonstrate to young people what goes on ‘behind the hedge’; showing how food is produced and explaining how we keep the countryside as a safe habitat for wild animals, flora and birds.
We can offer hands-on study in the fields - from digging potatoes to bug hunting, counting and calculating corn grains in a given area, memory collecting sticks, the life cycle of beef, pond dipping - and lots more.
We work with teachers to bring to life a very diverse curriculum based on topics linked to food production. We are a real, environmentally friendly farm, with all the sights, sounds and smells that are captured by the imagination and remain in the memory of young people.
