Plymouth schoolchildren visit Wembury's Moostone Meats farm
SCHOOLCHILDREN have gained an insight into life on a farm.
A group of 21 children from Oreston Community Academy in Plymstock visited Wembury's Moostone Meats.
As part of the morning's activities the children spoke to farmer and co-owner Tim Jakins and met the new-born home-bred Spring lambs.
The children were also shown the other livestock, including the Ruby Red cows, on the grounds.

Hannah Howarth, early years teacher lead at Oreston Community Academy, said: "We had a fascinating morning at Moostone Meats.
"Many of our children at the Academy would not usually get the opportunity to see the workings of a fully functional farm.
"It is an added benefit that at Moostone Meats they can then see the full process, observing the care taken at every stage, with the end product being sold in the onsite farm shop."
Tim and Charlotte Jakins run New Barton Farm and own Moostone Meats.
Co-owner Ms Jakins, added: "The local community is very important to us. These children represent the future generation. We hope we showed them a little of the passion for both the land and the animals that goes into farming.
"It is a way of life which takes hard work and dedication but has many rewards."
Oreston Community Academy's Young Enterprise Team is currently working with New Barton Farm and Moostone Meats to develop a new range of products to be sold at their series of school fairs.
The academy also serves Moostone Meats' produce at lunch time.
