Britains has awarded nearly £2,000 worth of toys to youngsters across England and Wales who have penned descriptive accounts of their farm visits.

Craig Varley of Britains Farm Toys’ said: “The farm visits highlight the importance of farming in terms of food production, the environment and the economy, as well as outlining the challenges it faces in the 21st century.

"The competition was designed to engage, entertain and educate children about these factors and get them to take an active interest in the countryside. The contest winners have now got farms of their own to run, with plenty of first-hand experience to bring their toys to life.’

The countryside reporter competition in conjunction with the NFU and the Open Farm Sunday initiative, was open to children between five and 12, who were asked for reports of experiences of a day on a farm.

The winner in each region won a whole miniature farm worth £200, while a second prize winner, aged between five and seven, in each region won a Britains Big Farm Radio Controlled John Deere tractor.

NFU president Peter Kendall said: “It is great to engage with the next generation of shoppers and consumers so that they know where their food comes from and a farm visit is the perfect opportunity for them to find out more.

"The children who entered the competition were very positive about what they did and saw on the farms they visited and it was really pleasing that so many were inspired to pursue farming as a career.”
