Yesterday, we went on a trip to Minskip Farm Shop and learnt about how the farmers grow their food. The shop was made out of wood and sold all sorts, such as: eggs, cheese, jam, fruit and vegetables. We went outside onto the farm area and looked at some pigs. Their names were Mudd, Violet and Bangers. The lady that was leading us through the farm (Emma) told us that the pig`s manure helped all the plants grow. In winter, the farmers have something called the hunger gap which is a time where not many crops grow, apart from some including kale and potatoes. Later, we visited the chicken spa. The leader told us about how the chickens are very well looked after and how they have toys, warmth and fresh straw to make them comfortable so that they can lay eggs. Because the farm is so close to the shop it means that there is a low carbon footprint getting food to the customer which is good for the environment.  We highly recommend that you visit the farm shop at Minskip.
