Field to Fork Festival Saturday 4th May 2019
You met more than 80 of most passionate producers of all things food and drink in the farmers market area, and the entrepreneurs that have started some of the nation's best businesses on Harper Street. You were able to meet the animals from the farm and learn about what they bring to the journey from field to fork. Remember Harper Adams also has small animals, a veterinary services centre and collections of insects, so the food of the future might not be what you expect...
The soil hall allowed you to see tractors and machinery galore up close and personal. You travelled through time and enjoyed looking at the vintage machinery or if the future was more your thing, then you could check out the Hands Free Hectare project where automated farming of the future was in action.
Fun and Activites
Entertainment for the entire family as the day was centrered around fun and more fun. There were loads of activities for all ages from 0 through to 100. Hands-on and mucky experiences: pond dipping, sporting activities, educational zones and so much more were all FREE to participate in, so we hope you came along and got involved. We had a HUGE live music stage with some top local bands and while mum and dad enjoyed a drink from the bar the little ones could enjoy loads of activities!
The "truth about food" talks and presentations highlighted some of today's current issues and you were able to find out where your food comes from and explore some common misconceptions.
Harper Street featured the best products from graduates who have gone on to be some of the best in the industry. You met with them and discovered the motivation behind what they have achieved.
