I've been going to Launder Farm since my first year at vet school, right through to my final year.The farm is the perfect environment to learn, especially if you're lacking in farm experience like I was. Its a low pressure environment; Matt, Becky and Liz are really patient and never make you feel like your question is a silly one.!”
