Tesco Farm to Fork Trail for Histon Brownies

Twenty Brownies from Histon attended a Farm to Fork Trail at Tesco Bar Hill last week

On arrival at the store, they told the Tesco Community Champion, Julie Sheppard, what they enjoyed about Brownies and taught her the new Brownie promise.

The Trail began at the fish counter where the girls learned about different types of fish and got the chance to hold a whole salmon. They were surprised to feel how heavy it was and some found the eyes and teeth a little scary! They then moved on to the warehouse where they saw how the deliveries arrive and experienced how cold the 5⁰c fridge and -20⁰c freezer were. They visited the bakery where they learned about the five stages of bread making and were amazed to learn how many loaves and rolls are made in-store each day. For the final stage of the tour, they visited the fruit and vegetable area where they discovered where in the world different varieties are grown, including mushrooms from Cambridgeshire. After creating a colourful fruit and vegetable rainbow, they returned to the meeting room where they had the chance to try some of the produce they had seen in the store.

Before the Brownies left, Julie presented them each with a certificate and goodie bag to remember their visit. Paige, aged 9, told Julie that her favourite part was holding the salmon and Amelia, aged 8, said she enjoyed chilling in the fridge!
