05 Jul Visit to local farm
On Tuesday, all students visited Yole Farm in Balsham. Agricultural Systems is studied in both KS3 and KS4 Geography and the visit contributed many insights into the working of a modern farm. Mr Kiddy, the farmer, told us about the very beginnings of the farm in 1924 and the many changes the farm had gone through. Today, the work involves GPS steered tractors, Eco regulations and competing with global prices. Mr Kiddy’s enthusiasm for the family business made it a very enjoyable and informative afternoon.
