Visit Scrutopia 2021 - New Year Update

School visits and outdoor learning can have a lasting impact on children and we want to be able to offer this opportunity at Sundey Hill Farm. This year we hope to offer visits that will help children connect with food, farming and the countryside by providing hands on activities to aid children’s learning about where their food comes from alongside numerous other benefits. We have been taking inspiration from the organisation LEAF. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you would like to visit!

We are also working on our 2021 Summer School programmes, for more details on this please visit
