WONTHAGGI Secondary College’s Year 10 Humanities class recently jumped on a bus to Wattlebank Farm to learn about enterprising behaviours and ethical business practices from a successful local family run business.
On a tour of the farm the students were able to observe pigs, dairy and beef cattle, sheep and lambs and chickens.
The students learnt about the effects that climate change has had on this business, and the challenges that many farmers face on a day to day basis.
To top the trip off the students were lucky enough to sample some of the cheese, ham and kabana that was made with milk from the on-farm dairy and the free range pork raised on the property.
Lots to learn on the farm
