Examples of Support from CRFT:

Through Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) we supported ten school visits from the BB&O region to seven local farms in 2012. All the farmers involved in the scheme attended special training through CEVAS, so that visits were of a high standard and one visit in 2013. 472 children aged from 4 years to 11 years benefitted from the visits and their objectives farms were to improve the children’s knowledge as to where their food came from and to incorporate this knowledge into the school curriculum. For example under science topics the children found out where milk came from and were able to watch milking taking place. They also learnt about animal welfare and looking after animals, healthy eating and conservation in the countryside, as well as experiencing new and unfamiliar environments and different lifestyles.

Other projects supported by CRFT were a Livestock Identity chart for Newbury show society and reprinted by FACE for the school visits.
