NFU grant for dairy farm

Scottish dairy farm awarded a £4,000 NFU grant for its dedication to educating young people.

A Scottish dairy farm has been awarded a £4,000 grant for its dedication to educating young people in the final round of funding from NFU Scotland's Centenary Trust.

West Galdenoch Farm in Stoneykirk, in the Dumfries and Galloway region of south-west Scotland, will use the grant to improve teaching resources for students and children.

The farm has strong connections with the Royal Highland Education Trust whose mission is to take the classroom to the countryside.

Established in NFU Scotland's centenary year, the Centenary Trust's objectives are to: encourage children to learn more about where their food and drink comes from; and to educate farmers, their employees, and their children on health and safety in the countryside.

The Centenary Trust has awarded more than £207, 000 to charities and organisations for projects across Scotland.
