Testimonials

The Bee Visit was very informative for our children. All the information was perfectly pitched, as were the activities, and the children faced fears. We will do a class write-up when we get back to school.

St Bartholomews Primary Bee Observatory Visits

One of the children told me that they had had the best day ever at the Breakfast Week Kids Country event. It was a lovely day and there was a great atmosphere.

Newark Hill Academy Breakfast Week

The children had a fantastic day and learned a lot about the importance of eating breakfast and where these foods come from. I could hear children excited and enthusiastic about their learning.

Newark Hill Academy Breakfast Week

The children had a great time and we are really grateful to all of the volunteers who gave up their time to make learning such an enjoyable experience.

Alconbury Primary School Breakfast Week

By educating thousands of children though our Kids Country initiative and encouraging them to talk to their families about food and the choices they make, we can play a major part in growing public support for the work of farmers.

Jeremy Staples Chief Executive of the East of England Agricultural Society

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to attend and be part of Food and Farming Day, it’s such a wonderful event. I am honoured to be a part of it.

Happy Chick Company Exhibitors

Thank you for Food and Farming Day – such an innovative event. Great fun was had by all. The drivers loved the interaction with all the children and so did the ponies!

British Scurry Driving Team Exhibitors

A massive thank you for the brilliant organisation and tremendous amount of sheer hard work and determination it takes to pull off such grand events as Food and Farming Day.

Anglian Water Exhibitors

We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as it is essential to learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstance.

Sandra Lauridsen Education Manager for Kids Country

Meeting real people who are in the field of food and farming, spending time and learning from the experts, the importance of, and how to grow, our own food, and much, much more.

Bridge Junior School Food & Farming Day

I had a wonderful day at the Food and Farming Day. Everyone left with a smile and comments like ‘wow, that was fun,’ ‘we will make this at home,’ and ‘mum and dad will love this apple turnover.’ What more positive feedback could we ask for?

Betty Staples Food & Farming Day

The children learnt so much as there were so many learning opportunities. As an urban town centre school, the opportunity to experience this has had a significant impact. Children returned saying ‘this was the best trip ever’.

All Saints CEVA Primary Food & Farming Day

This event makes children curious about their food and where it comes from, and the learning continues long after we get back to school. I am sure that as a result of growing their own vegetables, the children are more willing to try them.

Newark Hill Academy Grow Your Own Potatoes

The staff were all very knowledgeable, and we enjoyed the trip from start to end. A fantastic morning.

St George's School Happy Chicks Day

The children were very excited about holding the chicks. They came back and told their parents all about it and have now produced some lovely work around this.

Spalding Primary School Happy Chicks Day

All activities were fun and short in nature to keep the children actively involved. An excellent set up and fun for all.

Snow Goose Beaver Colony Scouting & Guiding Day

The Central England Co-operative has a long tradition of giving back to the community, and we welcomed the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and education of local children.

Karen Ball Member and Community Relations Officer, Central England Co-operative

The highlights were the kids – so well behaved and engaged. The whole experience was tiring, but so enjoyable. It will be hard to better it next year! A brilliant day.

Sue Brotherhood Volunteers

The rewards for just a few hours of input are difficult to exaggerate. Just to see the look on the faces of the children as they gaze in awe at all the activities is reward enough in itself.

Robin Limb Volunteers

I had a great day and thought it was a great experience. The enthusiasm of the children was infectious. The idea of doing an event like this is inspirational and I wish my son’s school had taken part so he could have had the experience too.

John Stinson Volunteers

I had a wonderful day at the Food and Farming Day. Everyone left with a smile and comments like ‘wow, that was fun,’ ‘we will make this at home,’ and ‘mum and dad will love this apple turnover.’ What more positive feedback could we ask for?

Betty Staples Food & Farming Day

Indulge your children’s imagination and inspire them to learn that cooking is fun and rewarding.
