Lessons in livestock down on the farm
Schoolchildren will be able to swap their classroom for one on a Westcountry farm to learn all about organic beef and pork farming.
Staff at West Town Farm at Ide, in Exeter, have unveiled new educational facilities for youngsters to get to grips with organic farming techniques.
The scheme is being run with the charity Organic ARTS who already run 150 schools visits a year with the farm as part of the Natural England Higher Level Stewardship Scheme.
Natural England are funding the new facilities that include a new classroom, farm trail, farm trailer and a website.

The Church of England rents the farm to farmer Andy Bragg, who believes people of all ages should be encouraged to learn about the organic food trade.
He said: "Our main enterprise is beef, reared organically and grass-fed. On a smaller scale we have pigs and grow some vegetables.
"We sell our produce as locally as we can. I feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy the countryside, understand farming and benefit from local produce.
"We want to see people here, learning about the farm and seeing how we produce food."
