Young people of all ages are easily engaged by the welfare of farm animals, and there are many opportunities to integrate this into the curriculum (e.g. Biology/Science, PSHE/Citizenship, Geography, Religious Studies, English, Food Technology and Scottish Higher Biology CfE and a range of subjects at college and university). We also have resources for the Primary age-group and resources for Parents with children of all ages.​
