The Milk House in Sissinghurst, will be showing its support for the future of Kent farming by sponsoring Kent Young Farmers’ Clubs at this year’s Show.
The award-winning pub, which prides itself on its seasonal menus showcasing the best local produce, will be supplying more than 50 lunch packs – containing carefully selected Kentish treats – for this year’s show judges.
The delicious local produce, which will help sustain judges during the 30 KYFC classes at the three-day event, is drawn from the best of The Milk House’s suppliers, including Frankie’s Farmshop bread, Ashmore Farmhouse cheddar, Park Farm ham, Old Dairy Brewery chutney, Kent Crisps and Chegworth Valley juice.
The Kent Young Farmers’ Clubs have a large area at the Kent County Show, with young people aged 10 to 26 competing for trophies and awards from eight school farms across Kent. The Kent Federation also includes 11 open clubs based throughout the county, making the annual Kent County Show the largest gathering of Young Farmers in Europe with more than 300 members competing.
The Milk House works closely with the food and drink producers on their doorstep, in order to support a locally-based food economy that benefits everyone in the community. They are enormously lucky to be surrounded by such a strong food and farming network and are delighted to invest in its future by supporting KYFC at the Show.
