EAS Food & Farming Day 2019

30 May 2019

Gepp Solicitors are once again, proud stewards at the Essex Agricultural Society‘s Food and Farming Day.

This year marks the 12th year in a row that the EAS have hosted this popular event.

Children from around the county enjoy a day learning and having fun, from seeing the impressive farming machinery, to meeting the animals up close. It’s a fantastic educational day and a chance for children to have fun and even meet a piglet or two!

The event enables 300 farmers to show 3,000 children the facts about Food and Farming. It was started in 2008, the “Year of Food and Farming”, and is carrying on due to the unprecedented demand from the schools within the county. It has become a fixture in the calendar of many of Essex’s schools and its farmers with both groups appreciating the opportunity to experience and explain what goes on behind the scenes at a farm!

Our Head of Rural ServicesEdward Worthy, is the current chairman of the Essex Agricultural Society.
