Farm Feast 2015

We were delighted to be asked back for our second year at Farm Feast at Claremont Farm (formerly the Wirral Food & Drink Festival) so we brought a bunch of our animals with us as well!

This year we had the whole of the Food & Farming tent to ourselves, so staff and students had a fair amount of planning to prepare the displays that explained what we do on the farm. Our involvement with Andrew and the Farm Feast gang came out of our locality and also our use of twitter as a way of sharing our story - so this became the theme of our display.

During the weekend, the weather stayed fantastic and thousands of visitors passed through the marque to meet our students and our animals. We brought a selection of goats and sheep as well as our new sheepdog Leif (he was a little shy at times).

By the time we were finished on the Sunday afternoon, we had spoken to lots of people and shared our message of high welfare standards, low food miles, food education and leadership to hundreds of people of all ages. Our students were a credit to their families and the school and continue toward their ambitions of being the next generation of farmers.
