Across the country, hundreds of farmers are volunteering to go into schools to tell children about their work and about the farming sector. For many, this will be the only direct exposure that they get to farming and the people who work on farms. In this episode of the Meet the Farmers podcast Ben Eagle speaks to Cambridgeshire arable (crops) farmer Luke Abblitt, who has done over 30 talks in schools since last September. Luke outlines some of the questions he gets from kids and explains why he believes it is so important that more children get the opportunity to learn about where their food comes from.
