In this introduction to agriculture, students explore the museum’s barns and meet a wide range of farm animals, from the small rabbits to the gigantic Clydesdale horse. Students learn about animal husbandry, and where food comes from. They also discover various careers within the agri-food sector, and the roles that science and technology play in today’s agricultural industry.
The Museum is a demonstration farm, complete with potential hazards. Please advise students accordingly and dress for the outdoors. To prepare for your visit, download the pre-visit information PDF.
