Food and agriculture are an essential part of our culture. When agriculture began, around 12,000 years ago it triggered such a change in society and the way in which people lived that its development have been dubbed the “Neolithic Revolution.”
Traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyles, followed by humans since their evolution, were swept aside in favour of permanent settlements and a reliable food supply. Out of agriculture, cities and civilisations grew, and because crops and animals could now be farmed to meet demand, the global population rocketed—from some five million people 10,000 years ago, to more than seven billion today.
In celebration of agriculture and culture Molescroft Farm are opening their doors.
There will be:
– Pigs, sheep, hens, arable, energy crops and dairy farming
– Wildlife with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust
– Vegetables and salad production c/o Frith Farm
– Binnington blooms
– Farm machinery
