Hundreds of families joined in the celebration of British produce at The Big Feastival, which took place at Alex James' Farm in the Cotswolds.

Members of the public enjoyed samples of British produce, including Mrs Middleton’s cold-pressed rapeseed oil, Wyke Farm’s award-winning cheddar cheese, and a popular Cox’s apple juice from King’s Orchard.

Five hundred members of the public, including Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, pledged their support for the NFU's Back British Farming campaign by hanging an apple on the Back British Farming pledge tree. Over 2,500 children enjoyed the interactive games in the NFU Discovery Barn, including the ever popular Annabelle the milking cow.

    Comment: We are an arable farming family of five,ranging from 16months to 46years. We grow British flowers, potatoes, cereals, cabbage and other seasonal seasonal greens. We would love to win these tickets in order to soak up and thoroughly enjoy all the British food and music industry has to offer.

    Comment: I'd like to go because it's relatively local and has more interest than just a music festival

    Comment: I want to see all supermarkets using paper bags at their checkout, as the Aussies and Americans have been doing for decades, ban plastic bags completely, as they would not be needed.
