Group and School Visits
As well as LEAF's annual Open Farm Sunday event, when lots of farms open their gates to the public, we also have a nationwide network of farms where visits for school and adult groups can be arranged throughout the year.
What will there be to see and do?
Every farm is unique with different things to see, from animals and crops to wildlife and fresh produce. Activities during the visit may include a farm walk, nature trail, tractor & trailer ride, pond dipping or activities for children.
Get a group together
Every farm is a real working farm which means hosting visits takes time out of the farmers busy day. Therefore visits can only be arranged for groups.
How much will it cost?
Generally there is no charge for visits, although we would encourage you or your group to become a member of LEAF and support our work.
What will I need to wear?
Most farm visits take place on foot or on a trailer. You will need waterproofs and strong footwear.
How long do visits take?
Visits take around 2 hours, depending on the size of the group and can be arranged at most times of the year.
How do I arrange a farm visit?
To arrange a farm visit simply contact the LEAF Office and tell us when and where in the country you would like to visit a farm, and, if applicable, the name and size of your group or visit our website and search for a farm.
