Somerset farm joins bid to teach youngsters where milk comes from
It is white and is used to make cheese – but a staggering 40% of youngsters still fail to correctly identify milk as coming from cows and 7% think it comes from wheat.
Undaunted by the survey, Cricketer Farm in Somerset set out to educate children about the origins of their daily pinta by teaching how cheese is made.
The farm, at Nether Stowey, is celebrating 60 years of its handmade Cheddars: Nether Stowey Reserve and Quantock Gold.
The event, at ASDA’s Taunton store, was aimed at linking agriculture to the food and drink we consume.

It came in response to a recent survey by OnePoll on behalf of Linking the Environment and Farming (LEAF), which found 40% of 16 to 23-year-olds could not link milk to a cow, despite being shown a picture of a dairy cow in a multiple choice.
