Facetime a Farmer

We have been taking part in the Facetime a Farmer initiative and you can now watch our latest video from Farmer Ben!

The LEAF Education and Village Farm's free FaceTime a Farmer initiative is transforming how farmers connect children with their food and where it comes from. FaceTime a Farmer is all about harnessing the power of digital communications to inspire, engage and educate young people about not only the journey from farm to fork but also the ever changing, diverse agricultural industry. Children can regularly chat live to their matched farmer from their classrooms through FaceTime or Skype, discuss ideas, ask questions, share knowledge and gain a ‘real-time’ understanding of the issues farmers face every day.
