We use a local courier company who charge a flat rate of £15 so it's economical to fill the box! Local delivery is available by arrangement at a charge of £7.
We really love having schools out to the farm to visit and experience what goes on at Hyden Farm.
We strongly believe that informing the next generation about
the importance of food production and sustainability is vital for the future.
If our children are fully aware of where food is produced and how it gets to their plates, and how making the right choices is so important,then they will be empowered to make good decisions in the future.
We have hosted visits for a number of schools, with children aged from 6-13. These visits have been organised and coordinated in conjunction with the, Grow To Eat
project and the Sustainability Centre.
However, feel free to get in contact, directly if you prefer! firstname.lastname@example.org or with Beth 07881893663
A visit begins with a welcome talk and a quick chat about health and safety.
We have a barn area for eating in or the children can picnic outside on the bales. We have
facilities to make hot drinks as well as a loo and handwashing.
We aim to inspire discussion about the farm, and farming and what the children think and know about the different types of
farming that exist. We encourage questions and can finish the day with a quiz to see how much they have remembered!
Its also good to challege their ideas about food production and get them to think more deeply about where the foods they eat might come from, and what animals
provide them, and how.
We want to enable you to make the visit fit your subjects and curriculum - so let us know what you hope to achieve and we will aim to tailor your visit to ensure you get the best from it!
If you would like to get in contact with us to discuss a possible visit and receive an information pack, do get in touch at

We hope to see you at the farm soon!
School Visits so far in 2016!
We have just hosted an International School with students from, well everywhere! They were a delight and really enjoyed feeding our pigs, touring the farm and digging in the ground to find out how important our soil is and how much it supports our eco sysytems.
We are now looking forward to welcoming a group of year 1 students from Ditcham Park school who are due to visit in a couple of weeks. We have a day of activities lined up and hope that they will have lots of fun!
We have really enjoyed hosting visits for lots of children this summer.
I so enjoyed showing the Bedhampton Methodist Play Group around the farm in July. They made some fantastic wooly sheep and really enjoyed the tractor ride and collectig the eggs.We really look forward to seeing them again in the new School term.
Clanfield Juniors came down on two separate days in July, from their residential stay at the Sustainability Centre. They proved themselves to be excellent cooks and all enjoyed eating the scrambled Guinea Fowl Eggs they made. They also tried some different olis and worked out which was from a crop grown here in Hampshire (Rape Seed Oil). The children and I also learned that pigs do not like celery to which they turned their noses away! However with a bit of clever maths they did work out that our two pigs will eat 2184kg of pig feed in one year! Wow they really are pigs!
Im looking forward to the next visit scheduled for 28th July with a holiday play scheme.
If you think your school/playroup/Cubs/Brownies or Beaver club would enjoy a visit then do please get in touch with Me, Beth on 07881893663 or via the website or simply by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you soon!
