Here at Trink Farm we are very proud of our sustainable farming policies and we think it is vitally important that people know where their food comes from and that it is sustainably and responsibly produced. For years we have welcomed groups of school children up to the farm and are very proud that all 3 of our farm team, Matt, Jack and Jowan, visited the farm with their respective schools!

Matt visited as part of his Geography class in summer of 1996, soon after he worked the school holidays and then weekends on the farm. He enjoyed farming so much he continued studying agriculture at Duchy College and worked as an apprentice here at Trink. We can proudly say he has been with us as part of the team since then and now lives on the farm with Sarah and their little boy Dexter!
Jack and Jowan visited from our closest primary schools – Nancledra. After one such visit, we received a thank you letter and picture drawn by Sebastian, Jos, Ethan and Jowan. One of the boys wrote a note on the back of what has proved to be true … as he is now working with us at the dairy and studying at Bicton Agricultural College!
