“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.

Visits and Education at Romshed Farm

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 are very pleased to be hosting a live webcam installed by Country Trust.

Visit their website and you can see what is going on at the Farm. It is restricted to WiFi range but we are positioning it on whatever is most interesting at the time. The Lambing shed has been great and we hope to show the swallows nesting and other farm events around the yard during the summer.

We also have Open Days during the year for everyone to see the farm and meet the animals. We are NOT open on Open Farm Sunday this year, as we have two Poetry Days on 30th June and 1st July - details on our Calendar. The Soil Never Sleeps by Adam Horovitzis an anthology of poems from four farms across the UK, including Romshed Farm. Adam stayed with us and will come back to read his poems and join us all on a farm walk to look at the places that gave him his inspiration. Booking essential for both days as limited places.
