The Farm to Fork workshop offers a unique experience for young learners to gain understanding of the food production journey that results in the creation of a staple of our diet, bread. Developing an awareness of where our food comes from begins with examining wheat plants for their component parts, then taking wheat grain to our water-powered Mill, where our Miller explains the workings of the mill and then sets the mill in action to create organic stoneground flour. The learners then take this flour to our kitchen, where they are taught simple food hygiene and baking skills to make a bread roll to take home.
Additional aspects to this workshop may include using quern stones to mill grain by hand and exploring cogs and gears systems linked to how water power is harnessed to turn the mill stones at our mill. Learners may also handle historic objects from the Museum Collection that link to the creation of food items to consider how food was prepared in the past.
