Two local farmers visited Theddlethorpe Academy recently to educate the pupils on where their food comes from and the importance of wildlife.

Richard Crust, who farms at Manor Farm, in Gayton Le Marsh, and Matthew Denby, from Longlands Farm in Withern, brought along a tractor for the children to explore and visited classrooms discussing how food gets from the fields to the dinner plate.

Richard Crust said: “This is an initiative between the National Farmers Union and Lincolnshire Agricultural Society.

“I enjoy visiting the schools, as it is very important to educate children about farming and where food comes from, and to tell them about the role played by local wildlife.”
