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.

Friendly farming duo Ben and Ellie invite children (and their parents!) to explore a series of games, colourful interactive information panels and fun activities, which together create a truly memorable learning experience.

Games include The Minute Milk Challenge featuring our much loved Annabelle the dairy cow, a British Sunday Roast Produce Puzzle, The Farming Year Magnetic Maze, our Farm Tour Tractor Experience and our Farming Champion Bean Bag Throw.

You can find us out and about from spring to autumn, attending school events, county shows and festivals. Our 2019 event schedule can be viewed below.
