We are passionate about providing young people with learning experiences which re-connect them with nature and foster a lasting love and understanding of our wonderful countryside.
Mayfields is a 40 acre smallholding which is home to sheep, goats, horses, sheepdogs, guinea pigs and a tortoise, to name but a few.
The farm also benefits from a small wooded area, two ponds a raised bird hide plus a red squirrel breeding enclosure.
If the weather takes a turn, we have an indoor classroom.

The activities at Pierrepont are led by Sarah Jenkins. Not only is Sarah a CRT Education Officer, she is also the tenant farmer of Mayfields Farm. Sarah took on the role of Education Officer at Mayfields in early 2019 – teaching local school kids about food production, animal sciences and other relevant subjects.
