Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society has invited schoolchildren from across the county to make pancakes and learn about how the ingredients for them are produced on local farms.

The students will congregate at the Pembrokeshire County Showground in Haverfordwest on February 7 and 8, 2024 to cook pancakes and taste locally-produced ice cream along with them.  

During the event, which is suitable for all ages from year two to year 11 pupils, there will be arable and dairy farmers from all over the county on hand to explain the journey of the different crops, milk and eggs produced in Pembrokeshire.

The event is sponsored by the insurance branch of the National Farmers’ Union (NFU Mutual), the CLA Charitable Trust and Women in Wales.

Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society anticipates that over 1,000 children will attend at allotted times over the course of the event.

Former teacher and honorary Pembrokeshire Show governor, Kathy Wilson, is organising the event on behalf of the agricultural society’s ‘Food Story/Stori Bwyd’

“One of the important elements of Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society’s work is spreading the word around the county about how local food is produced,” she said.

“We hope local school children will learn a lot about where their food comes from when they attend this pancake themed event.

“We are very grateful to all of the farmers and supporters who are volunteering their time to make this event happen. Please could we ask local schools to book their places as soon as possible.”

Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society said students will also have the opportunity to meet businesses from the local area, learn about health and well-being; as well as how science, technology, engineering and mathematics are used to produce food locally.
