Who puts the malt in Maltesers? How are potato crisps produced and what’s the buzz about honey?
These and many other questions were answered for primary school children from across Norfolk at a Countryside Classroom day on 18 May.
More than 400 children visited the Salle Estate in Reepham by kind permission of its owner Sir John White, for the bi-annual event run by the Norfolk branch of the Countryside Alliance.
Organiser George Bell said: "The aim is to help the children make the link between farming and the food they eat and introduce them to countryside activities.
"The Salle Estate got out all its massive farm equipment – the cultivator, plough, drill and the giant combine harvester - they met cattle, sheep and other farm animals, heard from the farmer who grows potatoes for Kettle Chips and much more.
"It was a fantastic day and I think the children had a fabulous time."
The Countryside Alliance’s education charities – Fishing 4 Schools and Falconry for Schools – were on hand to introduce the children to fly-tying and casting and birds of prey with the help of Out on a Wing Falconry of Watton, and the hounds of the North Norfolk Harriers also put in an appearance.
