… and wasn’t it a brilliant day!
It all started with a tour of the farmyard, a look at the machinery and a chat to the cattle and horses, before we settled down to lunch and were even provided with a free bag of Kettle Chips and a carton of apple juice!
And that was just the beginning. As the weather has been so hot, they were beginning the harvest that day so we were able to watch the massive combine in action on the barley field. Obviously, it left plenty of straw behind and Ross was quite happy to let us all have a good play in it.
Afterwards, we travelled to the nearby River Glaven where Ross tried to show us how his dogs were trained to retrieve things so they could work on the farm too. Typically, they were not much in the mood for behaving with a class of children watching them, but they got there in the end!
It was fantastic to hear the business point of view on animal and food farming, particularly after all of our work on helping the planet.
