The majority of this program will be based in London, which boasts some of the best museums, most beautiful architecture, and most fascinating cultural sites in all of Europe. Students will also see the beautiful rolling countryside while visiting various livestock facilities that range in size, scope and species cared for. Heritage breeds are emphasized by several of the centers. Students will spend roughly one-third of their time visiting livestock facilities, one-third of their time visiting horse facilities, and one-third of their time experiencing cultural and historical sites and events.
There is an emphasis on niche markets (e.g. a sheep/dairy/cheese processing center). Students will also learn more about the various parts of the supply chain process from farm to table. Punting on the river, watching the horse races and seeing a Shakespearean theatre production at the Globe will be among the cultural activities students will get to experience.
- Visit sites such as the Wimpole Home Farm, National Stud Thoroughbred Center, and Royal Veterinary College!
- Take in a Shakespearean play at the Globe!
