Pupils from Tollbrae Primary headed down to the farm to learn more about how their food is produced.
The group of 26 classmates from P3 were shown around Easterhouse Farm by owner Derek Douglas and his son Trevor, the Airdrie Central councillor.
Youngsters visited the dairy cows and sheep as well as seeing a robotic milking system in action and sitting in the farm’s tractor.
It was part of the programme of farm visits organised by the Royal Highland Education Trust.
Derek said:“The faces of some of the kids when they see where their milk comes from were just amazing. – they had no idea of the effort that goes into making a pint of milk.
“They all fell in love with the baby calves and were in awe of the size of our bull Steve, who weighs more than 950kg.”
Councillor Douglas said:“It was a pleasure to join the kids from Tollbrae Primary as they visited the farm where I spent my childhood and can be found at weekends.
“While it’s expanded and turned more mechanical, you cannot miss the delight and wonder they all have as to the process of making our food. I’d encourage all local schools to speak with RHET about visiting a farm near them.”
