Field to Fork Festival returns

After attracting a crowd of more than 9,000 people in 2018, the Field to Fork Festival returns to Shropshire this spring – and tickets are now available for the event on Saturday 4 May. The festival at Harper Adams University aims to celebrate all things food and farming, exploring the journey of our food as it goes from the farm to our plates.

“The festival, held initially as a one-off last year, derived from our desire to celebrate the country’s single biggest manufacturing sector: food,” says Simon Pride of Harper Adams.

“We all have to eat yet we frequently hear worrying stats; for example, a quarter of the British public do not know that bacon comes from pigs and a fifth are not aware that eggs come from chickens!”

Festival-goers can expect interactive entertainment, educational exhibits and presentations, children’s activities, tasting sessions, tractor-trailer rides, robot making, vintage tractors, animal interaction and a farmers’ market. Visit fieldtoforkfestival.com to find out more.
