About Farms for City Children

Farms for City Children exists to remove the barriers that prevent children and young people having meaningful access to the natural world. Through a week on one of our three heritage farms, children and young people experience increased learning and engagement, improved connections and wellbeing and leave us with an enhanced sense of environmental citizenship.

Visiting children are immersed in the natural world of the countryside through a food and farming offer that allows them to participate in the seasonal tasks of the day: sowing, growing and harvesting in our kitchen gardens; caring for livestock and looking after the land; and cooking up a home-grown feast in the farmhouse kitchen. Spending time working alongside real farmers fosters children’s independence and helps them to grow in confidence, develops their self-esteem, and encourages them to become more resilient.

In partnership with commercial farming neighbours, children experience the benefits of collaboration, enjoy plenty of physical activity, good food, and fresh air, and discover the magical rural environment that is full of new words, sounds and experiences to inspire their creativity.

“Some of the children we took to the farms had very difficult and chaotic lives. We took them out of a very difficult environment where they were unable to socialise and didn’t know how to share and put them into a totally different world. It was a haven where they could thrive.”

Teacher from London
