St. Wilfreds visit Fordhall

The benefits of Fordhall Farm as an educational resource slowly expand as more children visit and enjoy the farm.

Two weeks ago we had a visit from the St. Wilfreds Youth Group from Cheshire. We walked around the farm, they saw the animals and they learnt about the farming system Ben uses at Fordhall. They all thoroughly enjoyed the visit and one young boy even knew what 'Foggage Farming' was! It was pleasing to meet children who were already aware of the pressures of food production and everyday lives on the natural environment.

"It is great to see someone doing so much for the environment in an age of global warming"
David, Age 14.
