DYW Live presents Talk to a Farmer Week!

6th February - 10th February 2023

All these recorded sessions are available below to view on-demand!

Over the course of the week we will have a host of different farmers from across the country on hand to talk to your class about how different foods are produced. This year the focus is on farmers producing seeds and grains.

Each talk slot will last 30 minutes and consist of a video from the farm followed by the opportunity for your pupils to ask any questions they may have. Questions can also be submitted in advance using the links below each timetable.

As a guide, the talks are aimed predominately at second level. Please see the full timetable below highlighting which talks are suitable for which level.
