Dairy cows know which side their bread is buttered 21st October, 2016

A mountain of “thrown out” bread is piled in the corner of the recycling factory instead of making its usual route to landfill. The squashed rolls and leftover loaves from bakeries, supermarkets and fast food chains are tipped into the specially designed “do want don’t want” machine, plastic wrapping and all. The end result? Breadcrumbs for the cattle and recycled plastic for garbage bags.

From farm to freezer 20th October, 2016

How many different types of berries have you eaten? Have you ever tasted an elderberry, a loganberry, a cloudberry, a dewberry, a huckleberry or a mulberry? What about a berry that has been grown, processed and frozen completely in Australia? That’s what we’re tasting today as part of our next From Paddock to Plate production.

Careers in Grains 15th October, 2016

Have you ever considered working in the grains industry? Did you know that there are hundreds of careers that you can choose from? A rural news reporter, nutritionist, soil scientist, food microbiologist, plant breeder, lawyer, marketing manager, nurse, environmental biologist, farmer or a bioprocessing engineer if that’s what you’re interested in!

Land of fire and ice 8th October, 2016

You could be mistaken for thinking this is Mars with its dramatic landscape of volcanoes and lava fields, green fireworks dancing across the night sky and complete vastness (“people only live on the crust of the pizza”), except for the many waterfalls that give the Iceland game away. Geothermal spas are among the main attractions for the two million tourists coming to Iceland each year, who drink the mineral-rich water perhaps unaware that it has just come up from the ground in which it has been for over 16 million years.

FP2P moments capturing valuable food & farming knowledge, FROM farmers, FOR future farmers & those who eat The most accurate, direct and informative way to learn about Australian food production and about the hard-working & resilient people behind it, is to take the time to chat with a farmer, organise a visit during the school holidays and learn from them. The From Paddock to Plate National Schools Program provides students with the opportunity to learn from those who feed us everyday, no matter their location. 300+ quality food & farming, student and teacher resources continue to inspire the next generation across Australia about where their food comes from. Incredibly essential. ‍‍ —————————————————————————— TEACHERS & SCHOOLS: Get in touch with us today and discover more about the FP2P schools program, ready for Term 2! hello@frompaddocktoplate.com.au . . . #frompaddocktoplate #feedyourmind #supportlocal #australianfarmers #connect..
