What we offer on a school trip
Visiting Magdalen Farm is an opportunity to learn through real outdoor adventures.
We are known for our enthusiasm for creating learning experiences in the great outdoors. We tailor every trip to suit the needs and requirements of each school, linking food, farming & life together in exciting, engaging hands-on activities.
Whether it’s a day trip or a residential stay, our itineraries are personal and tailored to meet your needs. Our activities are led by experienced staff and made so fun and exciting that children won’t even know that they are learning.
Our 132 acres of tranquil organic countryside are found alongside the banks of the River Axe where Dorset, Somerset and Devon meet. Magdalen provides an opportunity to engage in nature and the great outdoors in a friendly, safe and accepting environment.
Everyone needs a place where they can be themselves. A stay at Magdalen allows people to benefit from the tranquility of nature’s surroundings.
We offer group accommodation for schools and small groups, fully accessible changing facilities, relaxing surroundings and not to mention our home cooked organic food.
Magdalen is a real working organic farm so no trip is complete without a hands-on visit to our farm animals, help us to groom the goats, feed our lambs and pigs, or to let out our chickens and collect their eggs.
We use fresh organic food straight from the ground, harvested by own fair hands – what better way to teach children about where there food comes from than by harvesting it themselves.
First and foremost, Magdalen is a team - with teaching staff, Care Farming specialists, kitchen and grounds team. We pride ourselves on being organized and efficient yet friendly and flexible and always on hand to help.
We believe sustainability should be fun - and Magdalen provides the perfect environment to learn about sustainable living. What’s more we practice what we preach.
