The Farmyard is the perfect destination to facilitate team and relationship building. Through a series of fun activities we explore our dependence on the land and the origins of the food cycle.

This programme lasts for four hours and includes:

  • Making a pizza in the traditional clay oven using the fruits of the organic polytunnel.
