Flying through treetops and walking with buffalos…………………….just an average Tuesday for some lucky 4th yr Food & Hospitality students from SCS.
The sun shone in Farran Woods during a glorious morning spent at the Zip It Forest Outdoor Forest Adventure Centre where students tested their nerves and physical endurance as they completed the high wire course. Very challenging but hugely enjoyable for all.
Back on the bus and the next stop was at Johnny Lynch’s award winning Buffalo Farm near Macroom (yes he is the guy from the Aldi Ad!) where students were treated to a super tour from Dorothy of Lee Valley Taste Trails as well as a personal tour of his own milking parlour and some wise words from Johnny himself.
Students were introduced to the farm’s latest arrivals… twin calves, before tasting the delicious produce from the on site cheese plant, including two new products which won’t be on the market for another two weeks. The empty plates said it all. It was a big thumbs up for all the delicious cheeses.
A super day out! Thanks to Sarah McCarthy, Norma Roberts and Liz Leonard for organising and accompanying.
