Education is at the heart of the CRT. We are passionate about providing young people with learning experiences that reconnect them with nature and foster a lasting love and understanding of our wonderful countryside. We offer full- and half-day school visits for 1 class (approx. 30) primary school children per day on our educational farms.
Mayfields Farm is a smallholding, home to a red squirrel breeding programme with a unique viewing hide, a farm dog training school, an educational garden and an array of small animals for students to meet. There is extensive pasture and orchard, and a wonderful wildlife pond and outdoor teaching area in the woods.
We are constantly working on improving our educational offering. We are in the process of improving Mayfields Farm teaching facilities. These upgrades will be completed by spring 2021. Please get in touch if you would like to visit prior to spring 2021 and we will work to accommodate your class.
