Stockley Farm Park comprises of a mixed organic dairy and arable farm, which incorporates a pay-to-enter visitor attraction; the diversity of our business provides opportunities for Secondary, GCSE and ‘A’ level studies in a variety of subjects including Geography, Leisure and Tourism, Business Studies and Science based subjects.
Our knowledgeable staff will engage students in a variety of activities and discussions that allow them to explore our constantly evolving farming business, encouraging them to draw their own conclusions regarding different approaches within the agricultural industry.
Students are encouraged to adopt a ‘hands-on’ approach to our interactive activities, which include the opportunity to:
- Explore the open farm and meet our animals
- Meet our dairy cows and take a tour of the milking parlour
- Enjoy a tractor and trailer ride out to our fields to learn all about our arable crops and land management
During your day we can cover a variety of topics including diversification, animal husbandry, food production, organic vs conventional farming, selective breeding and land management. We are happy to adapt your day specifically to a subject/topic area of your choice and will work with you to create a tailored itinerary.
I have brought my A level Environmental Science students to Stockley Farm Park for about 10 years now and can honestly say both I and my students have enjoyed every minute of our time there. The team at Stockley have brought the syllabus alive for us. They have enabled my students to see how milk is produced in today’s competitive market, whilst still managing to minimise the impact on the local environment and promote conservation of both habitats and UK species. Great experience, thanks!
