An agricultural team have been teaching children about the journey their food makes from field to fork.

Pupils at St Gilbert's Primary School in Stamford were joined by the team from Kids Country to learn more about where food comes from.

They made pancakes, tasted rare breed pork sausages and learnt about how pigs area reared.

Farmer Luke Abblitt showed the children what cereal crops can be grown in a metre-square of soil and they also got a close look at a New Holland tractor.

Teacher Victoria Berry said: “It was such a brilliant, well organised and informative day.”

Kids Country education manager, Sandra Lauridsen, added: “It was great to deliver this event face-to-face with so many children.

"Nothing beats this kind of learning, touching and feeling with your hands, and seeing with your own eyes, as well as speaking to the producers who deliver this food for us.”

The team will host a Food and Farming Day at the East of England Showground in Peterborough next month.

More than 2,000 children have already signed up.
