Enjoy, Learn, Remember.

New Hall  Farm  is a working farm, growing wheat, barley , oilseed rape, beans and grass.  Environmental management has been a major part of our farming  practice for the last 30 plus years.  We have a small flock of sheep  grazing some of the stewardship grassland.  We pride ourselves  in running what we consider a balanced farming system, producing a quality, affordable food staple whilst maintaining a thriving and diverse wildlife environment, supporting a number of red and amber list species.


Our visits provide an opportunity for students to get out in the fields  and see what we do first hand. Use the visit to help illustrate what you are learning in school, and most importantly to generate questions.
