​The Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU) in partnership with Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend (BOIOFW) and competition sponsor Asda, is reminding schools’ that the deadline for the ‘Farming through the seasons’ schools’ competition, is Friday 24 March 2023.

The competition is open to all playgroups, nursery, primary and special schools across Northern Ireland.

It will assist pupils in learning about the ‘farm to fork’ journey and how farmers work hard to produce the nutritious, high-quality produce on our tables, whilst looking after our iconic green landscape.

Entry forms have been sent electronically to all playgroups, nursery, primary and special schools. Schools’ competition templates are available by visiting www.ufuni.org (news and education tab).
