The story of our food...
One of the important elements of Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society’s work is educational and spreading the word around the county about how local food is produced by farmers. The response to our Food Story interactive display at the County Show in 2022 was extremely positive and we hope local schools and the children will learn a lot about where their food comes from when they attend Food Story events and use the activity sheets uploaded here monthly.
We don’t mean chocolate eggs! We mean real eggs that you can scramble, fry, poach & use to bake.
This month we learn about the life cycle of a chicken and egg and many interesting facts about eggs and how they are good for you.
You can also enter our competition to design a poster about eggs to win a Family Pass (2 adults and 3 children) to the Pembrokeshire County Show for both days (16th & 17th August 2023)

Pembrokeshire is famous for its potatoes, especially the
Pembrokeshire early potatoes.
Growing and harvesting Pembrokeshire Early potatoes
has been taking place in the Welsh county since the 1700s,
using special methods honed after centuries of experience.
Potatoes are frost-averse, making the Pembrokeshire coast
– warmed by the Gulf Stream and benefiting from rich,
fertile soil – the perfect climate for their growth.
In 2014 the European Commission recognised
Pembrokeshire Earlies as an outstanding regional product,
awarding Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status.
