DSC_1832Fun-filled family event Countryside Lincs is set to return to the Lincolnshire Showground on Sunday (April 9th) with hands-on learning experiences about food, crafts, farming and the importance of the countryside.

Families will be able to interact with farmyard animals big and small, bake tasty treats and meet Lincolnshire producers and farmers who will demonstrate farming methods and the origins of our favourite foods.

Rosie Crust, Education and Development Officer for the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, said “Last year we had a huge turnout of 3,000 people attending tripling visitor numbers from the previous year.  Countryside Lincs is designed with fun activities in mind and it is great to be able to offer an event with an agricultural aspect, exclusively for children.

“This year we will have seven different zones to explore, all with different things to see, make and do, plus a packed timetable of entertainment in our Countryside Ring.  New for this year, we’ll have interactive storytelling from the popular Rhubarb Theatre.  And we’re bringing back tractor and trailer rides around the Showground, which was a highlight last year, and an Easter hunt for everyone to get involved in too.”

Visitors will also be able to experience the Dog and Sheep Show, The Sheep Roadshow, a pedal tractor obstacle course, sausage making, wool spinning, seed planting, fishing and more.

Rosie added: “We are really passionate to help children learn about food, farming and the countryside and we strive to inspire and educate children wherever possible.  With so much to see and do at Countryside Lincs, it really is a great action-packed day out.”
