Farm & Farm Shop

Brockhill is very lucky to have a working farm as part of the beautiful school site.

The Farm includes cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens and small animals. All farmyard animals are reared to finished meat and are sold in our own Farm Shop.

Our Farm Shop is currently closed but we hope to open again soon. The Farm shop can be found next to the walled garden and will be hopefully open soon on a Tuesday and Friday between 3 – 4.15pm. 

At Brockhill we are passionate about teaching students where food comes from, every year 7 and year 8 student has one lesson per week called the Great Outdoors (GO). In year 7 GO students learn about topics such as healthy eating, food miles and undertake activities such as smoothie bikes and omelette making as well as the lambing year. Year 8 Go is based more upon farm animals and livestock meat production, following the production of sausages and getting the opportunity to design and make their own burgers. Year 9 students can opt to take a level ½ Frist in Animal Care which is followed by a BTEC National Diploma Option in year 12 and 13 called Animal management.

The school are very proud of our Young Farmers Club, members meet weekly on the school farm to learn about animal welfare, husbandry and show technique. We show our animals annually at the Kent County Show in July and at the Ashford Fatstock Show in December.  Club members run public events including Open Farm Sunday in the Spring and Carols with the Animals at Christmas.
