S4 Farm Visit

S4 pupils braved a chilly and wet November morning to visit Old Mains Farm near Bishopton. This was a mixed farm producing both crops animals.
We discovered that the farm has a contract to provide top restaurants, M&S and McDonalds with their prime beef. They also supply the Scottish drinks industry with grain for brewing.
The visit really helped to put all out classroom learning into context...and pupils even got to climb into a tractor - no farm visit would be complete without that!
