  • As soon as you can, review your objectives, decide what worked well and what you might do differently another time. Think how you can make the most of the visit for future learning.
  • Farmers love to have feedback from visitors. Letters, pictures or photographs encourage them to go on offering visits, and can be displayed at the farm or on their website.
  • There are many follow-up activities you can link directly to your farm visit, and you can find a wealth of suggestions in the Resources section of this website such as Dairy farm post-visit activities.
  • Keep in touch with the farmer and they may send you updates of how animals and crops are progressing, or might be willing to visit the school to talk more about the farm.
