THE Henley Show will once again have its popular Food and Farming Marquee, where both young and old can learn just where their food comes from.
Virginia Deradour and her team have laid on another interactive display where “hands-on” is the order of the day.
Once again, visitors will be able to make pictures using grain — always a popular activity.
Henley Standard food columnist Paul Clerehugh, who runs the Crooked Billet pub in Stoke Row and the London Street Brasserie in Reading, will be lending his chefs to help children do some baking. Malt the Brewery will be showing what goes into beer.
Delilah the wooden cow will be there for children to experience what it is like to milk a real one and there will be real cows in the milking demonstrations.
There will also be Tamworth piglets and the very popular flock of valaise blacknose (teddy bear) sheep.
As usual, there will be a quiz with prizes of baseball caps with the “Food and Farming” logo.
Visitors will be sure to go away having learnt something about food production and how food reaches their tables — and about the importance of conservation.
