FarmerTime is a unique program that links farmers with the consumers of tomorrow through virtual visits to the classroom throughout the school year. Farmers are beamed into the classroom every two weeks for 15 minutes to talk and meet with the students and introduce them to the farm and all the activities that go on.
The aim is to inspire, engage and educate young people about not only the journey from farm to fork but also the everchanging, diverse agricultural industry. Children will regularly chat live to their matched farmer from their classrooms virtually, so they can discuss ideas, ask questions, share knowledge, and gain a ‘real-time’ understanding of the issues farmers face every day.
Airfield Estate is proud to work with LEAFUK to provide this free service between Farmers and Teachers and launched the programme in September 2021 supported by SuperValu.
