A £1.3 million development of Cheshire’s Tatton Park Farm attraction officially
launched on Wednesday 4th July with an opening celebrated by over 150
people from across Cheshire and beyond. The event gave visitors the
opportunity to find out more about the innovative ‘Field to Fork’ project which
tells the story of the journey of our food, from ‘field to fork’.A recent survey* of 5,000 school children
found that 14% of 5 – 7 year olds think that bacon comes from cows, sheep or chickens and 13% of 8 – 11 year olds think that pasta comes from an animal. In its heyday the Farm helped feed the whole of the Tatton Estate and it is hoped that the ‘Field to Fork’ narrative will help reconnect families with the origins of the food they eat by bringing to life this fascinating heritage.
