A new set of films that promote farming as a job to school children have been made in Cornwall.

The Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) has partnered with Oatey Media to create the series of 14 short videos.

The films are aimed at primary and secondary schoolchildren and they highlight the exciting and diverse opportunities available in the agricultural sector.

It’s not just farming that's in the spotlight - other related industries and supply chains, such as machinery engineering, food production and veterinary science, also feature.

The films star young farmers from across Cornwall, who hope to inspire the next generation of farmers.

It is also emphasised that children don't have to come from a farming background to consider a job in agriculture.

As part of its 'Farm and Country' initiative, RCAA hopes that these videos can serve as part of its education programme that it runs across the county, with the ‘Farm and Country on the Road’ trailer, and serve as a resource for teachers when educating their students about careers.

The films can be seen via YouTube at bit.ly/Careers-playlist and they are also listed on the RCAA website, royalcornwallshow.org/education/rcaa-career-videos.
