What we do

The Country Trust help children to learn and experience food, farming and the countryside.

Corn
Food

We aim to work with primary children who have the least opportunity to visit the working countryside, and target schools with a higher than average percentage of children eligible for Free School Meals, as well as schools with children with Special Educational Needs.

We currently work in eleven areas of England and Wales including London, Hampshire, the Home Counties, East Anglia, East Midlands, West Midlands, North Wales, Manchester, Liverpool, Yorkshire and Northumberland.

The Country Trust help children to learn and experience food, farming and the countryside in 3 ways; Day visits to real working farms, residential visits to the countryside, yearlong programmes exploring every aspect of growing cooking and even selling food.
