Farm in a Box Local

Bringing the farm to you

Farm in a Box Local is prepared by your local Country Trust Coordinator and delivered for you to run in your setting. It is a Box packed full of versatile, personalised farm-centred activities so children can connect with and learn about a farm in their local area.

Farm in a Box Local is ideal for schools and groups who are...

  • currently unable to attend a Farm Discovery visit
  • keen to introduce some pre-learning around food and farming, why farming matters, or key learning objectives, ahead of their Farm Discovery visit
  • working with EYFS children or additional needs such as SEND who would benefit from in-school sensory learning experiences.
