Educational Experience to Connect Families with Farming

PUXTON Park wants to help aid the education of youngsters by holding a two day dairy event to bring teaching to life.

The attraction wants to encourage families to connect with farming on April 25 and 26, where it will showcase its 150 pedigree Holstein, highland and longhorn cows.

It is hoped the informative days will offer a real insight into the life of its cows and its farmers, with detailed farm tours and exclusive access behind the scenes.

Visitors will also witness milking demonstrations and be talked through the process as it happens, and then learn how the milk is used to make cheese in the parlour.

To complete the experience visitors will be offered a glass of Puxton’s very own milk, along with a homemade cookie.

Head of Park, Sarah Warren, said: “We offer a wide range of educational experiences here at Puxton to bring education to life.

“Dairy weekends are highly popular; as are our lambing events and both allow families to really connect with farming.

“It is a great experience for children to come along and learn where a glass of milk actually comes from, rather than believing it is just out of a carton.”
