Introduction

“Dig In! Learning about Life on the Farm and Countryside” is an interactive agricultural curriculum designed for primary school students. Broken down into comprehensive topics, Dig In covers all different aspects of farming. These topics range from the Irish farmer, farm animals, healthy eating, food products and farm safety, to earth science, sustainability, food security and the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
