S5 and 6 Health and Food technology students Organic farm visit

On Monday 1st November 13 students from the Health and Food technology course got their wellies on and made a visit to Hagbrae farm near Pathhead to learn more about how an organic farm is run.

Farmer Mr Lorrain Smith kindly showed us round and gave us a fascinating insight as to the pros and cons of being organic and how the market for organic food is on the increase.

We even found out that McDonalds use only organic milk for their milk shakes, which prompted the group to think a visit was needed to try it out for consumer trial purposes !
