| 1 Comment


We put a bid in for a chicken house to keep chickens until they lay eggs and after. We put another bid in to visit local produce and look at local produce shops and people who make it, plus maybe watching them tend to it .Steve the baker agreed to be our business partner. He uses all the local produce he can. I don’t think there is much local produce compared to other places.


This term and next term we are doing about local food\produes and its all about food were doing about different kinds of food.


This Term and Next Term We Are Doing Food for Thought. Food for Thought is about Local Foods/Produce. Our Business Partner is Steve The Baker. Yesterday we went to a walk to the rams and this is what I Learned in The First Part Of This Project:

· That they are different types of breeds of sheep like, Shetland, Cheviots, Suffolks

· The way to tell the lambs and sheep apart is by the lambs faces being black

· The rams do fight but in heat they rest


Our business partner is Steve the Baker I’m glad we have him as our business partner because he bakes everything with local produce.

We have been to see Jennifer’s sheep already. Jennifer’s sheep Cheviots, Shetland and Suffolk. The lambs have black faces and the sheep don’t because of the ram.


When we started talking about how much food we can get in Shetland I realised that there were actually quite a lot of local produce. In this project Steve the Baker will be our buisness partner. Jennifer told us the breeds of her sheep eg. Cheviot, Suffolk and Shetland sheep. We learned that Jennifer’s lambs breed, was Shetland Cheviot which was Cheviot and Shetland sheep crossed bred. the lambs had black faces with white spots on them. Jennifer’s Cheviot rams had their horns taken of so they wouldn’t start fighting each other or they could not get stuck in the fence, they also got their tails trimmed so when they poop, the poop didn’t get stuck to their tails.

I know that mutton comes from sheep, beef from coos and pork from pig.

We are going to have Steve the Baker as our business Partner. We went to see Jennifers sheep and they were sheviot sheep we went see them because you can make them into mutton. We have chose to do this because we have so much local produce. The Lambs have black faces and the sheep have white faces. We are going to have Steve as our business partner because he uses local produce with his stuff.


                                                                    Local Food

Our business partner is going to be Steve the Baker it is great to have him as our business partner because he knows so much about local produce. Yesterday we went walking to look at sheep and to see what they look like and to see what kind of sheep they were. The kind of sheep there were Cheviot and Suffolk. The reason why we went to go and see the sheep was because Jennifer breeds the sheep every year. Then after the lambs have grown up they kill the sheep and the lambs have grown up and they have lambs.       


                                                                       What I Already Know

In our food for thought project Steve the Baker has agreed to be our business partner for the project, he has agreed to show us around and to tell the older ones a bit more about his business. The reason why it’s good to have him as a part of the project is that he uses local produce and he is a really nice guy as well.

So far we also have been to see Jennifer breeding Sheep. The breeds of sheep wear Shetland, Cheviot and Suffolk. The reason we went to see them is because sheep when they die can be butchered and turned into mutton, but Jennifer doesn’t all the mutton for herself she also puts some of the sheep to market and sells them and the others she keeps to breed with.

The reason why this is a good project is that there is lots of local produce here like vegetables, fruits, meats, fish and dairy products.
