Field to Fork Family Festival

04 May 2019 - Newport Shropshire

what's happening on the day

So have you ever wondered what goes on a Harper Adams University? Newport is full of students but do we actually know what courses these students are enjoying? Well how would you like to get hands on and have a go, milk a cow, make butter, discover the journey of your food.

See tractors at work, meet the animals, listen to live music, enjoy great food, kids entertainment, sunshine and an awesome venue. This event promises to be an entertainment extravaganza with all of the ingredients of the best festivals topped off with the uniqueness that a venue like Harper Adams can bring to the table. Focusing on the expertise of each of the departments at the university the festival is something special for the whole family that has never been done before.

Starting with FREE entry this event is all about fun mixed up with a dollop of education. Get the bus from Newport or park at the showground. Travel the journey of ‘the cheese sandwich’ from mixing curds and whey, discovering the taste zones on your tongue and the hands washing hygiene.

Next you need to visit the tractor in the field and see how the wheat is planted, harvested and processed through to flour. How does yeast and fermentation work and what makes a loaf of bread? Every element of the food journey will be investigated with big shiny tractors to the historical vintage machines of the past. Learn how to programme robots, meet animals, enjoy a pollination trail or chill out on the grass with a glass of gin and watch the live music.

With over 50 free activities this a festival not to be missed for the whole family. Interactive entertainmen, testing sessions, pond dippin, robot making, animal interac and more. This is a great opportunity to come and explore, to learn and most importantly have fun! Visit for more details.  10am - 5pm.
