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 with the theme of “conservation”, inspired by show president Barrie Haigh.
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.
Delilah the wooden cow will be there for children to experience what it is like to milk a real one.
For the purists, there will be real cows in our milking demonstrations. There will also be a cheesemaker, beekeepers, a micro-brewery, piglets, ducks and poultry.
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 ofÂ conservation.
