CHILDREN from all over Suffolk flocked to the county showground on Thursday for their own country fair.

It was Suffolk Agricultural Association’s 12th School Farm and Country Fair, held at Trinity Park, Ipswich, home of the annual Suffolk Show.

Some 4,000 youngsters and their teachers met farmers and professionals from the agricultural industry to learn about how food reaches their tables. But there was also a fun side as they saw sheep sheering, gun dogs at work and ferret racing. They also had the chance to meet farm animals from chicks to Suffolk Punches.
