Inspiring children about British farming

The NFU Education team wants to open young eyes and inspire children to learn more about British farming, from the food we eat to the countryside we all treasure. Our work brings the world of food and farming and the joy of being out on the farm and in the countryside to the comfort of your own home.

British farmers are vital to our everyday lives. Farmers up and down the country are working around the clock to feed the nation and care for the beautiful British countryside.
