9LSC recently completed their farming topic in Geography. To better understand the daily running of a working farm we visited Streamvale on 29th May 2018.
On the trip we got to better experience the pastoral side of farming. In the milking parlour we learned more about which cows were used for dairy and beef farming.
Some of the milk collected here is used to make ice cream on site which is then sold in the café. Other uses for it are in local cream, cheese and yogurt products.
In class we learned that farms are including new fun activities in order to help attract more visitors to sustain and develop themselves.
At Streamvale this includes barrel and tractor rides, a go-kart course, nature trails, dog agility shows and a zipline.
Overall it was a scorching hot fun day out which pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed.
