Help us to develop Brymore School farm into a modern facility that can be used to allow other schools and charity groups to come and experience a real working farm

Below is a list of what we are hoping to be able to integrate into our farm regeneration. The farm currently has 25 Dairy Cows, 50 Beef cows, 6 Breeding sows, 100 Sheep, 80 chickens but the farm has become very run down with a number of the buildings being well over 60 years old.

Some of what we wish to incorporate into the development are:
• Primary Group Visits (facilities).
• Mobile Farm (Schools)
o Drainage/Waste/Recycling
• Use of sustainable energy in farming
o Running a productive farm- Measuring Effectiveness and efficiency
• Creating facilities that lead the way in Animal welfare.
• Developing a much more effective way of farming.
• Tractor driving designated area.
• Breeding programmes
o Link in theory with practical, make theory more accessible and attractive

These are just some of the ideas that what we could develop in creating a facility that is inclusive to all.

What we'll deliver:

  • Uplift the existing buildings to become both aesthetically pleasing as well sustainable
  • Development of a farm shop
  • Development of a theory classroom onsite

Why it's a great idea:

We see us planning a bright future for the farm and the school!

The farm aims to produce a community supported agriculture project which aims at bringing communities closer together through labour participation in an agricultural setting, giving rise to hopefully:

-Healthy Local Economies: Community farms are locally owned and operated, and democratically controlled. Local farms keep money circulating in their communities rather than exporting it to absentee owners or shareholders, and the benefits are passed on to local restaurants, farmers markets, retailers, and consumers.

-Social Capital and Community Amenities: Community farms build 'social capital' by involving a diverse group of individuals – farmers, community members, and organizations – with different skills and knowledge. This social capital, or wealth, helps create community amenities beyond food production, including environmental and agricultural education, recreational opportunities, and nature conservation areas.

Steps to get it done:

  • Use of Tea with an Architect to source local architects who can help design and give vision to the idea
  • Use our extensive contacts and partners as a project resource
