"We need adults and young people alike to have a real understanding of where our food comes from, how it is grown and what it takes to grow it. Without this our food will simply be taken for granted. We will neither value it, nor respect the people who produce it. So an early experience of life on the farm, of digging potatoes, of collecting eggs, of feeding sheep, pigs and cows, is crucial if our children are to begin to comprehend the importance of food in our lives. And so we send you our warmest best wishes for the success of this timely and important initiative."
