About Food & Farming Day

The Kids Country Food & Farming Day (FFD) is an interactive learning event that teaches children where food comes from, and the importance of agriculture and the countryside.

The 2019 event was attended by 3,500 pupils from 53 schools across Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, and Essex. There were also over 300 exhibitors from 70 companies offering various activities across 12 learning zones.

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