Children's Field-to-Fork Cookery

After the roaring success of our Festive Family Cookery day, this Spring we're back to celebrate the freshest crops that Spring-time brings on The Community Farm.

During the day, children and their parents/carers parents will get to harvest crops from the fields and learn how to make a tasty seasonal meal to share.

Jo Ingleby (BBC Cook of the year 2015) and Claire Rosling from Earthwise will be leading the day. With their great experience combined, this is sure to be a fantastic experience for those budding chefs out there!


We will be holding two separate cookery sessions for different age ranges:

10am-12.30pm: 2-7 year olds

1.30-4pm: 8-16 year olds

NB. This is just used as a guide so if you have two children that fall in different age groups please use your own judgement.

Parent Feedback:

"The setting and the flow of activities was just so perfect! Your team was fantastic and Jo incarnates a subtle mix of charisma with humbleness that adds onto this great 'feel good factor'! There is so much passion behind your work that it genuinely shines out. We will come back for sure!"

What do the kids have to say?

"It was one of the best days of my life!"
"Picking the veg and chopping them was my favourite bits."
"I am happy I can give food to mummy."
