RHUG Estate recently welcomed children, staff and parents from Cylch Meithrin Clocaenog to their farm.

The group of 15 were excited to see all the different types of animals living at the estate based near Corwen.

Whilst visiting Rhug, the children, aged between two and four years old, were given a tour of the farm by farm manager Gareth Jones.

On their way around, they got to see the farm’s sheep, bison, cows and chickens, before completing their visit in the Rhug playground and a picnic on the grass.

Ffion Jones, the group leader who accompanied the children on the visit, said: “We were grateful to the staff at Rhug for accommodating our visit.

"All the children were absolutely fascinated by all the different types of animals they saw during our tour. We were even lucky enough to see a chick close up. It is of vital importance that children learn from a young age where their food comes from.”

The Rhug Estate encourages groups to arrange a tour of the farm to learn more about how organic food is produced in a sustainable way.

Rhug owner Lord Newborough said, “I believe it is part of our job as custodians of this land to impart the knowledge we have to the next generation.

"I feel it is vitally important to spread the word about how important organic farming is to providing a better, more sustainable and healthy future for the next generation.

"I want our future generation of consumers to make an educated choice when it comes to where they buy their products from.”
