Welcome to the Relaxed Farming website

Relaxed Farming is a detailed account of the life of a smallholding, written for a school audience. It includes a daily diary written over an (almost) two-year period, photos, videos, animal sections (who they are, how to look after them etc) plus sections on food and how to build and use a polytunnel. It is perfect for teaching children all about where their food comes from. Please feel free to use (but not copy) any part of it in your classroom/homes!!
PLEASE HELP KEEP THIS SITE GOING: paying our small subscription will make a BIG difference - THANK YOU!!

Teacher and Smallholder courses

Are you a teacher, parent, home educator? Would you like to learn more about smallholding and/or caring for and animals? We run smallholding courses for the new and aspiring smallholder and can also offer BESPOKE TEACHER sessions where you can come and learn all about our animals, how we look after them, take photos and videos and leave with a wealth of knowledge and material to take back to the classroom. Find out more here.
We have developed a bank of KS1 and KS2 classroom resources that will be made available to anyone who takes part in any of our sessions.
