FAMILIES turned out to get more of an understanding of farming.

Vine Farm in Wendy was part of a national Open Farm event.

Farmer James Fielden said it was crucial that children started to think about food and "the importance of British farming".

Visitors enjoyed tractor and trailer rides to see the growing and harvesting of wheat, which included the Hereward milling wheat produced for bread company Warburtons.

The visitors also learned about conservation and farming through various workshops.

James Button, a sales manager for Warburtons, said: "Warburtons is thrilled to get involved.

"It's great to highlight the link between the food that we eat and farming.
