Year 5 Trip to Hirsty’s Farm

Posted on: July 8, 2019

Last week, year 5 went on a farm visit to Hirstys; a very informative and fun day. Richard (farmer and owner) spoke to us about farming in our area and what he grows on his farm and where it goes to. We went on a tractor trailer ride around the farm and stopped at different places on the farm and spoke about what was being grown and how and when they plant it.

We were thrilled to be able to try Richards peas that are being harvested next week, they were amazing (and going to Aldi and M&S).
Richards potatoes go to McCain chips and Mc Donalds how exciting to know that in November we could be eating chips from there that Richard has grown in our area.
We finished the day with some free time to play on the fun park which of course was a big hit.
