Dairy Days school trip

Friday 28 June, 2019, by Karen Griffiths

Our education specialist Heather Hodgson has put together a really interesting Dairy Days-themed project for local secondary schools. Last week thirty students from The Wensleydale School in Leyburn enjoyed a full day of exploring the history & traditions of dairying – with demos at the Wensleydale Creamery, quizzes at the Dales Countryside Museum and a visit to a traditional Dales farm, Lowlands in Askrigg.

Here are some photos from Heather of what looks like a really interesting and busy day.
