Farming Fortnight

Farming Fortnight an initiative from LEAF Education is fast approaching 1st-12th June 2020, so now is a great time for primary and secondary schools to have a focus on farming and food production to learn more about where their food comes from.

Farming Fortnight a LEAF Education (Linking Environment And Farming) initiative is fast approaching 1st-12th June 2020. The fortnight offers young people across all key stages the opportunity to focus on how their food is produced and some of the farmers behind it.

Each day of Farming Fortnight has its own theme and accompanying social media hashtag to encourage everyone to share their learning experiences online. The themes were developed by students at Brockhill Park Performing Arts College with LEAF Education, so why not join in with your class?

Farming food for you - new posters

Farmers in the UK produce a wide range of food and the AHDB have produced some new posters to show life on the farm – how animals are reared and cared for, and how crops are grown and harvested. The six posters explore different farming sectors – dairy, beef, sheep, potatoes, cereals and pigs.
