It has certainly been a busy start to the year for the Discover Farming team. Our new classroom at Washingpool Farm has hosted a number of school visits but we are keen to encourage more local schools to visit the outside classroom and learn about what is growing and happening at Washingpool. At the 2016 Melplash Show we will once again have our Discover Farming marquee which will offer a huge number of FREE activities for children to take part in. This could be anything from calving a dummy calf, to watching chicks hatch or even grinding your own wheat to make bread and pizzas. Building on the success of our Discover Farming zone we will be introducing a second marquee aimed at older children. Farmers for the Future will host a number of interactive displays including drone flying and robotic milking – all aimed at highlighting the huge amount of career possibilities within the agricultural industry.
