Long Clawson Dairy is proud to be part of the Tesco Eat Happy Project, currently working on the Farm to Fork initiative. The Eat Happy project is a long-term commitment to tackle children’s diet related health problems by helping them have a better relationship with food, whilst the Farm to Fork is a nationwide Tesco initiative dedicated to helping children understand where food comes from. The goal is to take one million primary school children on “Farm to Fork Trails”. Working closely with their suppliers, Tesco arranges trips to farms, fisheries and factories to show them where a cow is milked, where lettuce grows or how butter is made.
All major stores will also be opening up their bakeries giving children the chance to bake bread, showing them the wonders of the fruit and veg sections and taking them to far away countries by exploring the World Food aisle amongst many other fun and educational activities, engaging children with the origin and process of the food they like to eat.
At Clawson Dairy we support the project by running in-school sessions, teaching children our cheesemaking process all the way from the happy cows to the hungry customers. It is an interactive hands on session including stilton tasting, cheese grading and the children get to design, make and name their very own cheese. So far we have had some interesting culinary delights including “Blueberry Dream” and “The Best Cheese Ever”
