Farm shop visit for Food Technology students


Students got a glimpse of the journey their food takes before it reaches their plate during a visit to a leading farm shop.

Twenty-five students visited Apley Farm Shop, in Shropshire, as part of their Food Technology studies.

Apley Farm Shop features 12 businesses that focus on fresh, local and seasonal produce, and students spent four hours there meeting staff and sampling some tasty offerings.

Food Technology teacher, Miss B Chima, said: “They are studying sources of British food, so their visit began with an introduction from the General Manager and Farm Shop Manager before heading off for a guided tour of Apley Walled Garden. 

“After a wholesome lunch in the Creamery Cafe, they met the Apley Butcher and Apley Farm Manager, Adrian Joynt, to hear in detail the journey their food makes, from field to fork.”
