HECK! to Host Little Farmers Discovery Day

Children enjoy gardening event

Grab your wellies and waterproofs and head to HECK! next month, where the Bedale-based food company will be hosting its first Little Farmers Discovery Day.

Taking place on Saturday 11 May between 9.30 and 11.30am at the HECK! HQ herb garden, the hands-on, fun farming experience is aimed at giving under 10s their first taste of growing food and learning how it goes from field to fork.

Led by members of the HECK! team, participants will be able to roll up their sleeves, plant their own micro greens to take home, plant vegetables in the herb garden and revel in the delight of getting their hands very dirty!

With all the hard work done and hands washed, everyone can tuck into a free HECK! Dog. Other activities on the day include a mini tractor circuit, play area and tracker-themed colouring station. There will also be a competition to name the new HECK! tractor.

“We’re known for our sausages and burgers, but we’re also passionate about education, sustainability and fostering a love for the great outdoors.” says HECK!’s Ruby Parkyn.

“Our business is deeply rooted in farming and we believe in the joy of outdoor exploration, come rain or shine. Whatever the weather brings, we’ll be pulling on our wellies and encouraging children to come along, get planting with us.”

HECK! Little Farmers tickets cost £9.95 and children must be accompanied by at least one paying adult. The event takes place at HECK! HQ, Lime Lane, Kirklington, DL8 2NY on Saturday 11 May between 9.30 and 11.30am, with HECK! Dogs served afterwards. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.eventbrite.com.
