‘Simply asking’ the animals at Graves Park

Monday, November 2, 2009

Graves Park Animal Farm provides a home to some of the rarest breeds of farm animals in the country. You can get up close and personal with Tamworth pigs; Highland cattle and Jacob sheep, plus goats, donkeys, waterfowl and many more. Meg Munn MP recently re-visited the farm and Peter Fletcher, the Graves Park Animal Farm Manager, took her around the farm’s facilities.

 

Meg wanted to show her support for ‘Farm Animal Week’ and the launch of the RSPCA Freedom Food’s ‘Simply Ask’ campaign. The ‘Farm Animal Week’ is Freedom Food’s annual awareness raising week, aiming to get people thinking more about the lives of the animals that are reared for food. The ‘Simply Ask’ campaign urges consumers to ask about food origin when eating out - with an initial emphasis on eggs. Currently around 80% of eggs used in food services still come from hens kept in battery cages. 

 

Meg said:

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time visiting the farm.  It is a fantastic place for children to enjoy, as well as an opportunity to learn about the different stages of growth, from the incubators housing chicks to the free range pens for the fully grown hens.

 

It’s important that consumers are aware that they can make a difference by buying welfare-friendly products in shops and supermarkets, but also by asking when they eat out where their eggs, meat and fish come from.”
