Abstract

The many recent developments encouraging more visits by school children to farms have highlighted the need for research on the interaction between farmers, schools, teachers and school children, and the effect of these visits for both farms and the schools. This research aims to 1. To identify how farmers responded to the challenge to engage the public in farming 2. To identify how teachers integrate farm visits with teaching the national curriculum in the classroom. 3. To record children�s reactions to farm visits. Research was carried out in three regions: the South East, the North East and the West Country.
