Visitors to the event also had the chance to taste test at the Taste Awards competition and view poultry and livestock shows. Along with this, visitors could also watch the fireworks display and peruse some of the Christmas stalls.
The Royal Welsh Winter Fair aims to showcase all aspects of agricultural life, from field to fork. At Harper Adams, we have a similar vision, with our aim to provide our students with real world scenarios at every stage of the field to fork process so they can consolidate their learning with evidence and practice.
Overall, the event was a great success and we look forward to attending the next Royal Welsh Show.
