Food and Farming Student Day 19 June 2019
This highly popular event was held for the eighth year at Hollow Trees Farm, Semer near Ipswich, by kind permission of Sally and Robert Bendall. The event was organised by a partnership of Hollow Trees Farm, Easton & Otley College, Suffolk Agricultural Association and Suffolk Education Business Partnership Ltd with support from local employers, and was sponsored by the Chadacre Agricultural Trust. The event provides an opportunity for 13-15 year-old Suffolk students to learn about agriculture and the huge range of career options offered by the Food and Farming Industry, such as careers in crop production, agricultural engineering, research, food, sales, marketing and conservation. The students were split into small groups and escorted by stewards from the farming industry to the eight interactive workshops around the farm.
