Farm Experience Program

farmexperience program school kids on farm

A Rabobank initiative

To increase awareness of the amazing career opportunities the food and fibre industries have to offer.



A unique experience for city students to discover what agriculture is about and where their food and clothing comes from.

FX aims to give city school students the opportunity to experience the food and fibre industry and learn about its complexities and the career opportunities it offers by experiencing the rural lifestyle first hand, while working on a farm for a week and attending various related agribusinesses. The program is a partnership between Rabobank and metropolitan schools.
