Kids get the opportunity to win a farm for the day
The competition will be available from the NFU Let’s Talk Farming Roadshow which is touring the UK this summer. The roadshow aims to raise public awareness of agriculture, putting a face to farming and explaining what farmers do.
During the weekend festival held at the Royal Welsh Showground on Saturday and Sunday, 17 and 18 May 2014, children are invited to visit our roadshow and take part in the competition which encourages 4-7 year olds to think about where their food comes from by playing a matching up game.
The prize of a visit from Tractor Ted’s Little Farm Live will give one youngster the chance to experience a farm, with real live animals, in their back garden, local park or school playground for the day. The winner and their friends will also have the chance to play on Tractor Ted’s unique giant bouncy tractor and slide.
NFU Cymru President, Stephen James said, “It’s vital that the next generation understand where their food comes from and the Spring Festival is the perfect opportunity to launch this competition as children will get the opportunity to see all sorts of animals whilst learning more by visiting our Let’s Talk Farming Roadshow which will be situated outside the NFU Cymru building, next to the main ring.
“We’re delighted to work with the Tractor Ted team to deliver this competition. It’s a fantastic opportunity to reach out to thousands of youngsters in a fun and engaging way.”
