About Agriculture

You will be involved in all aspects of the farming year - including lambing, shearing, ploughing and harvest - and assist with the College’s beef herd. We also have close links with local dairy farms so you'll get all the experience of dairy herd management as well. Our beef herd forms part of the College's wider re-generative farming strategy that helps improve the environmental credentials of the farm and provides excellent learning for students. By studying a course in Agriculture, you can become part of an industry which is key to the production of food, preservation of the countryside and ongoing survival of the rural economy.

The Agricultural team have a array of experience ranging from crop, soil, plant, livestock, machinery and business management, and bring this knowledge and experience to the delivery of the courses.

The courses have a mixture of practical and theory and are delivered making use of the excellent Agricultural facilities.


We also have great partnerships with local establishments such as FGS, Burdens farms, Park Farm, JPF Farms and Bore PlaceFarm (Organic Dairy).
