There are many ways in which the a visit to Craigie’s Farm can enrich the classroom experience:
- It is the perfect place for students to discover the importance that food comes from a farm, not a supermarket.
- Visits fit many aspects of 'A Curriculum for Excellence', and are an exciting and efficient way of introducing experiential elements to such a project.
- Outlines some of the work that farmers undertake to help manage the land and conserve and protect the ecosystems of different types of rural flora and fauna.
- Visits can be taylored to suit all ages from Primary 1 up to University Students.
If a teacher has any specific experiences they wish the children to get from the visit, we will happily arrange this. Just let us know the details when completing the booking form below and in conjunction with a RHET Project Co-ordinator, we will tailor the experience to suit. RHET will also take care of all of the previsit risk assesments.

Even after a mega busy Saturday we have enough strawberries and raspberries for the same again!
Raspberries (Glen Ample and Cascade Delight), strawberries (Sonata and Centenary), blackcurrants (Ben Conan), gooseberries (Invicta and Pax) and broad beans are all in season at the moment. All are plentiful and easy to pick so if you plan to fill your freezer now is a good time! The cherries are still available but the juicy black ones are a bit harder to find, lots more to come they just need a bit of time.
We operate a minimum spend of £3 per person (applies to walking age up) which is payable on entry to the PYO fields and can be redeemed against any fruit picked but is not refundable.
This crop report was as off 9am on the date above, it does not reflect how busy we may have been since, we have no control over customer numbers.
