Students have been getting hands-on experience with a visit to an agricultural firm.

Easton College students paid a visit topsoil suppliers, Bailey's of Norfolk, based in Hevingham, on Monday to learn all about the business.

As well as watching a video on production at the firm, the students were also able to get hands-on visiting the laboratory on site and seeing the company's operations first hand.

John Farrell, director of Bailey's of Norfolk Ltd, said: 'This is something we are looking to do every year. The college students who came to visit will be building the visit into their curriculum, writing a report about their visit, it is all part of the learning process for them.'
