Little Comfort Farm embraces the Food for Life Partnership

Little Comfort Farm has been basking in glorious sunshine recently and ringing with the sound of enthusiastic school children visiting the farm through the Food for Life Partnership Scheme.
The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture. Their aim is to revolutionise school meals and reconnect children and young people with where their food comes from, and to inspire families to grow and cook food. The scheme’s ethos is very close to our own ideals and we have been delighted to see so many young people enjoying everything the farm has to offer whilst learning more about the food they eat and where it comes from. Roger has particularly enjoyed the enthusiasm demonstrated by the youngsters as they tour the farm with him and their obvious fascination with the livestock, the egg collecting, weighing and packing and the whoops of delight as they climb aboard for their tractor and trailer ride.
We’ve also just hosted our first ever conference style training session, again in partnership with Food for Life. A group of teachers from local schools attended to learn more about the scheme and what it has to offer. The new games room came into its own as it was transformed into a training room with tables and seating for 20 people complete with projector & flip chart! Everyone was very complimentary and the buffet lunch we provided using Little Comfort produce and homemade cakes went down very well. Once again Little Comfort and the beautiful valley proving its versatility and ability to extend a warm welcome to all visitors – we look forward to hosting more training sessions & mini-conferences in the future.
