On Sunday morning, Mr Calow, 3rd Form Food & Nutrition pupils and Mrs Tooke set off for Jimmy's Farm, which is a working farm with a growing herd of rare breeds, free range pigs, cows and sheep in Suffolk. We learnt about sustainable farming along with hands on sausage making. After taste testing many different types of sausages we got to see and learn about the conservation and preservation of some of the rarest breeds, though Teddy the Tapir wasn't in the mood for visitors and preferred to wallow in the shades of the tree. A delicious lunch of hot dogs was followed by a tour of the Wildlife Park & Butterfly house. Pupils then got to test their den building skills in the ancient woodlands. After making a few purchases of sausages (we cleared the counter!!) we headed back to school, practising our singing skills all the way home.
A fabulous day had by all
