Caz Graham visits a farm for children who are visually impaired and have disabilities. When the Royal London Society for the Blind opened Hollybank Farm in Kent 18 months ago many of their students were terrified of the animals. Now they have overcome that fear and everyone gets involved from collecting the eggs to selling the sausages.

These children don't have traditional lessons but use the farm to learn outside the classroom. Due to their disabilities the children are unlikely to ever become farmers but this vocational learning has taught them basic maths and English, and more importantly has provided a vital connection to the outside world. Caz Graham mucks out with some of the students and with Chris Ely, the agricultural manager.

Presented by Caz Graham and produced by Emma Weatherill.
