Food & Farming Day

1 July 2022

The Kids Country Food & Farming Day aims to teach children where food comes from and the importance of agriculture and the countryside, through interactive learning experiences.

Just £4.80 (inc VAT) per child

Each year, the Food and Farming Day is attended by 3,500 pupils from schools across Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and Essex. Over 300 educators, farmers and local professionals offer various activities across 12 interactive learning zones.

Children get the chance to touch and taste various foods; find out more about livestock and working animals; make pancakes and pies in Kids Kitchen; see the machinery and technology deployed on UK farms; and much more.

“There were so many activities for the children to be involved in. Our children learnt about many aspects of farming life, which surround our home environment. The staff were very helpful and the children really enjoyed the shows and getting practical with food and animals.” – Tydd St Mary CofE Primary School
