Bramfield pupils visit Blythburgh Olympic farm
Lucky youngsters have had a special visit to a north Suffolk farm to learn how some of the world's top athletes will get their food during this year's London Olympics.
Children from Bramfield Primary School went down the road to Blythburgh Farm, near Halesworth.
They were joined by farm owners and brothers Alastair and Stuart Butler, whose free-range pork will be served to the thousands of athletes and team officials at the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The youngsters learnt all about how the food is produced and how it will make its way from the 300-acre farm to the 31 Olympic venues.
The farm is part of the Red Tractor Assurance Scheme, which is an integral part of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games' Food Vision.

Both Alistair and Stuart are passionate about having happy, healthy pigs and have been breeding and rearing the animals on the sandy soils of Suffolk for more than 15 years.
The farm is monitored by Red Tractor, which includes four vet visits per year to monitor health and welfare plus one annual inspection to cover the breadth of food safety, animal welfare and environmental protection.
