Growing, picking and tasting - Generating Food Awareness at the farm

 

At The Community Farm we’re keen to get people understanding more about food and not just how it’s grown but its nutritional value and how to prepare and cook it into something tasty!

 

Educational Visits
With child obesity statistics through the roof there is a real and desperate need to educate younger generations about food and healthy eating. Our educational visits for schools and community groups explore not only how we grow food on the farm but we also aim to include food preparation and tasting as part of the visit. Our recently built cob pizza oven will be used for children to prepare their own pizzas using produce they've harvested directly from the fields. This way we hope generate a greater understanding about nutrition and the importance of eating fresh local food.

If you’re interested in arranging an Educational visit to the farm we’d love to hear from you! Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit our Learning page for more information.

 

Plot to Plate: Seasonal Vegetarian Cookery
Most of us realise the importance of eating seasonal, local produce and consuming less meat but we recognise that it can sometimes be tricky thinking up new and exciting recipes in line with the seasons. For this reason we’ve teamed up with Demuths Vegetarian Cookery School in Bath to provide our first Plot to Plate Seasonal Cookery Course on Sun 14th July.

During the day you will have the opportunity to harvest produce directly from the fields to produce a wonderful shared feast. You’re sure to go home bursting with fantastic recipe ideas!

“We are excited to be able to offer this new workshop at The Community Farm where we can cook amongst the fresh produce and pick a variety of ingredients fresh from the fields to the plate. This day course will teach you how to improve your knife skills, use herbs and spices to liven up your cookery and understand flavours using fresh local produce."
Course Tutor, Jo Ingleby
