Why Farming Matters

Farming diary

Refers to page 18 in the booklet

This activity provides a sequencing task and suggests inviting a farmer in to school.

Ideally, arrange a visit to a farm so that pupils can ask these questions of the farmer directly.

To find a farm near you, visit Countryside Classroom. Farming & Countryside Education (FACE) can help you prepare for a farm  visit. Contact your Regional Education Co-ordinator.

One dairy farmer who is well known for her cheese keeps a diary here.
