Lower Treginnis was delighted to welcome our friends from the NFU Cymru to the farm this week to see the Farms for City Children offer in full effect.

NFU Cymru, Deputy President, Abi Reader, was accompanied by Pembrokeshire County Chair Simon Davies, and his Vice Chair Maarten Davies, and Pembrokeshire farmer and Council Delegate, Clare Morgan.

Following a tour of the farm, there was the chance to discuss how the charity works with children and young people in England and Wales, connecting them to the origin of their food through a range of purposeful farming tasks.

There is significant alignment in our mission to ensure that communities have greater understanding of how food is produced for our plate, from field to farm to fork.

Speaking about her visit and how we can collaborate more with the NFU Cymru in future, Abi Reader was keen to say: “It was absolutely fantastic to visit the farm and see what you do. We shall definitely make sure we promote what you are doing and keep an eye out for opportunities”.

We are very grateful to the NFU Cymru for making the trip to St Davids, for spending time with the farm team, especially Alan in the garden, and for talking to the delightful children and teachers of Harris Academy, Crystal Palace.
