Educational Visits

Manor Farm received full accreditation to host schools visits in 2007


CEVAS was established in 2003 to help farmers and growers provide
safe and worthwhile visits to all kinds of farms. This National scheme has been developed by Access to Farms, DEFRA and Department for Education and Skills. The accreditation has two elements; training
for farmers working with children during farm visits and a farm assessment.

Manor Farm has acieved and important benchmark by being awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge which informs teachers and others organising educational visits that they can be assured of good educational experiences.


Our farming activities can be linked to all Key Stages in the National Curriculum. 


We hope to enrich the learning experience of children through their visit to a real working farm, providing the farm and countryside as an outdoor classroom.  We are hapy to discuss your requirements to help provide a meaningful farm visit and the raw material for your follow-up work at school.

We host not for profit visits from local schools, Sixth Form students, City schools, Academies and Agricultural colleges. For all ages and abilities.

We welcome other visitors from Scouts to Government ministers, the Surrey Hills AONB and Defra.


Booking is required for all visits to Manor Farm.
Complete and send the Enquiry/Booking Form and we will contact you to discuss details and organise a pre-visit if required.

We have worked with The Country Trust for many years hosting Educational farm visits and this is what Jill Attenborough, Country Trust CEO has to say:

'The Country trust is a leading provider of high quality experiences of food, farming and the countryside for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.  We rely on a network of amazing hosts who welcome children to their farms, including the Matthews family who have enthusiastically hosted Country Trust educational visits for the past 7 years. They have shared their passion for sustainable farming with hundreds of children, primarily from disadvantaged backgrounds who have little or no understanding of or connection with the working countryside and where and how their food is produced.
