Animal Handling Competition 2021

One of the highlights of our Harvest Festival is our animal handling competition. Young Farmers and Farm volunteers competed in by age and class to determine who knew the most about caring for and handling the furry, feathered and four-footed.

We are grateful to our judges: Jenny Bettenson of Spitalfields City Farm, John Langan retired stockman of Kentish Town City Farm, Klara Saville of The Brooke and Meg Wilson of Capel Manor College.
