Food and Farming DAY
Children from Kilham school were amongst 1600 pupils from the Driffield area and further afield who took part in a yearly food and farming day to gain an insight into where the food on their dinner plate comes from and how it is produced. Children from the school were escorted around over 70 different stands to learn about how their food makes it onto the supermarket shelves.
All of the activities were led by local farmers and growers with the children encouraged to get hands on in interactive displays, watch large farm machinery in action and ask lots of questions. In the main show field children saw modern farm machinery including pea viners and combine harvesters. Children got involved in many activities including a huge jigsaw showing the parts of a pig where different cuts of meat derive from.
All of the children had a wonderful time, please have a look at the gallery below for pictures of the day.
