Newcastle University had a Farm

Actually, it has two, and last Friday, all the MSc students in the school of agriculture got to go see them for ourselves!

The first stop of the day was at Cockle Park Farm, a 262 ha conventional farm.

Then we were off to Nafferton Farm, a 300 ha farm pretty evenly split between conventional and organic farming.

The farms are beautiful, and the weather was absolutely perfect. I can’t wait to spend more time out here and to learn everything I possibly can.
