Educational Visits

West Lodge is a family run working farm which regularly hosts nursery and school visits. We offer guided and non guided trips to suit your individual requirements. Guided trips can be linked to topics and schemes of work. We have an educational officer who is happy to talk through any requirements you may have. Our farm guides are all CEVAS accredited and have a wide range of experience with schools and will accommodate groups from foundation stage through to KS3.
