Brue Farm and Nursery_14430Your knowledge and expertise is an essential tool in helping us to demonstrate what farming does for the nation, and how they can help ensure its future. A compelling experience for those not involved in agriculture, farm visits bring our industry to life. We’re always looking for farmers to host visits from stakeholders, including MPs. If you’re interested, please contact your regional office.

You can also join the hundreds of farmers helping to educate children about farming, with a school visit or open day. Find out more about our free resources and useful links.

If you’re thinking of hosting a visit, you might be interested in taking part in a Countryside Educational Visits Accreditation Scheme (CEVAS) course. The training results in a nationally recognised accreditation and while not mandatory, is highly recommended.

Real-life farmer stories play a vital role in our work to illustrate what British farming does for the country, while highlighting issues affecting rural communities such as fly-tipping or rural crime. If you have a story to tell please get in touch with our press team and help us stand up for you.

Our Let’s Talk Farming Discovery Barn travels across England and Wales to teach 4-9 year olds about food provenance and the hard work British farmers do 365 days a year to produce glorious food for the nation.

We're normally out and about from spring to autumn, attending school events, county shows and festivals. We're taking a break this year due to COVID-19, but check back to see our latest schedule when restrictions allow - we're always looking for helpers.
