Fresh air and goodness for the community of Farsley Farfield Primary School

Many thanks to our friends at Barclays

Once again, Barclays has ‘come up trumps’ for Farfield Farm having brought a team of volunteers (and a grant) for a day of labouring. They repaired rotten raised beds, transformed the fruit cage and built a dozen new raised beds to the left of the top polytunnel. It was a magnificent effort!  Many, many thanks!

Winter harvests

March 28, 2016 at 6:59 am


Years 5 and 6 carried on visiting the farm in the winter. They spent time planning seed orders and crop rotation. There wasn’t much to harvest but these Y5 children did harvest some Jerusalem Artichokes. Do you know their nickname?

Some seeds like it hot whilst others tolerate some colder temperatures and will still germinate. This document can help us to decide if it is the right time to plant certain seeds:

Spring at Farfield Farm

April 23, 2015 at 6:57 pm


Children and staff (and the bees) have been busy up at Farfield Farm. These photographs show how the raised beds and other areas of planting looked on 22nd April 2015. As children from Reception and Year 1 have been visiting this week, and next, I took these photographs so that when they come again in the height of summer they can see how much things have grown.

We have been planting, tasting, digging, watering, potting, collecting, feeding, watching, listening, enjoying, smiling, picking, smelling and most of all learning!

Thank you to the Year Six helpers, Brian and Ms Howells.
