Using land at our Regional Distribution Centre in Newbridge, County Kildare, and supported by Agri Aware, Lidl has turned over 8 acres of land into a free educational farm experience which primary school children from 2nd to 6th Class can enjoy and explore.
Young visitors can tour the specially designed farm where they will learn, through an educational program designed by Agri Aware, how the retailer sources local produce, how crops grow and then they will get practical demonstrations of how a farm works.
In addition, tours of the Lidl Regional Distribution Centre are offered, which provide the children with some insight into how our retail supply chain works, and how the products we eat and drink everyday get from the farm onto the Shelves in your local Lidl store.
The Lidl Farm is FREE! Lidl do not charge anything for the tour experience, making this an affordable school trip which we hope is welcome news for schools and parents. However, please note that schools will need to cover their own transport costs to get here.
Tours will run during the months of September and October, and from March until the end of the school year in June. A specially constructed entrance has been created which will keep farm visitors separate from distribution centre traffic.
Simply register your interest in arranging a tour by completing and submitting the form on this page.
The Lidl Farm team will then then get in touch with you by to discuss suitable dates and availability, provide useful information and guidance on what to expect, what to pack, parking, tour duration and so on in advance of your group visit.
