“Romshed is a beautiful farm and with the teaching of Mrs Weston it represents a rare opportunity for the children to get a sense of farming and nature. I think both the children and the teachers learnt a huge amount from this lovely morning”. - Jonathon Bishop, Year 8 teacher.
“Your tour was spot on… the barn was a big wow to see, be in, as a group meeting place”. - Jackie Thomas, Deputy Head teacher.
We provide group visits for adults and children and the best visits are tailored made to each group`s requirements. We can cover a wide range of areas of the National Curriculum and Fidelity has completed a Cevas Course which means we have a good understanding of the education system and the health and safety and risk assessment requirements for a safe and successful visit.
We are part of the FoodForLifePartnership which helps children to understand more about where their food comes from. We are really delighted to be supplying meat to Valence School in Westerham. In May 2014 Valence School achieved a Gold Award in the FoodForLife Programme.
National education charity The Country Trust help disadvantaged children to learn and grow through hands-on day visits to real working farms, residential visits to the countryside and yearlong programmes exploring every aspect of growing and cooking food. We are pleased to be a host farmer for them. They rely on donations to keep their good work going as is shown in this short film
We also have Open Days during the year for everyone to see the farm and meet the animals. We open on Open Farm Sunday which will be 11th June in 2017. Come and enjoy the farm with guided and self guided walks, wildlife activites and a relaxing fun day for all the family. We are holding a Plants and Pollinators Painting Competition for adults and children so bring your paints or crayons, or use ours.
