THREE Oakfield Academy students were fortunate to spend five days working on Jamie's Farm.

The working farm of more than 200 acres also runs residential farm stays for school groups.

The Oakfield boys, Sam Neal, Tyler Singer and Tommy Davis, experienced a typical week as a farmer.

The day began at about 6am by starting the fire before feeding chickens, pigs, horses, cattle and sheep.

The boys worked hard at mucking out the stables and pig pens before returning to the kitchen to make their own farmer's fry-up.

The rest of the day was spent, chopping wood, making fences, picking vegetables and preparing meals. In the afternoons the boys undertook a five-mile hike, followed by a deliciously prepared dinner.

An Oakfield spokeswoman said: "The boys all had a fabulous and challenging week on the farm.

"They all worked very hard and were great ambassadors for Oakfield Academy."
