We are a small, dynamic national education charity dedicated to bringing alive the working countryside for children least able to access it.
Since 1978 The Country Trust has been making it possible for hundreds of volunteer farmers and landowners to welcome thousands of disadvantaged young children from all backgrounds and faiths onto their farms to share their passion for food, farming and the countryside.
We help children to learn and grow in 3 ways, through:
We teach children how to grow vegetables and herbs, cook healthy meals and to understand where food comes from.Read More
We make it easy and safe for primary schools across England and North Wales to visit real working farms and the countryside.Read More
We have over 20 years' experience of organising outstanding residential trips which enable children from disadvantaged areas to discover the countryside.Read More
