Scotland's Farming Year DVD

Scotland's Farming Year is an educational DVD which gives children an insight into many aspects of Scottish Agriculture and helps them to understand where their food comes from.


The DVD is available free to all primary schools and focuses on health & wellbeing, science and social studies.

Its aim is to provide a comprehensive introduction to farming in Scotland, and its role in food production and the countryside.

Funded by the Scottish Government Food & Drink Industry Division, ‘Scotland’s Farming Year’ was filmed on several Scottish farms.

Cinecosse filmed and edited the DVD and Mark Stephen gave the commentary.

The DVD is designed to supplement RHET’s school Farm Visit and Classroom Speaker programme.
