Pontfaen Young Farmers Do it first!

Even young farmers can get the urge!

Ever felt that young people are all about eating McDonalds, KFC and overdosing on sugar? Err.. yes of course they are, but most kids are also quite savvy when it comes to knowing what's good and whats' bad. In Pontfaen near Brecon, the kids know that you get out equals what you put in and a little effort gives a big reward.

So two weeks ago the Young Farmers Club was split into two age groups and each group spent an evening baking bread with us (and pizza with the left over dough) and then while it was still warm and fresh they scoffed the lot!

Now think about this! - if a group of farmer's children in the middle of the lambing season can spend time learning how to bake good bread what could your child learn. And what could your class or group or club or friends get out of a shared experience that could set them up to a better lifestyle and diet?

And it's not as expensive as you might think
