FRENCH farming students got to grips with local agriculture during a trip to Huddersfield.
The 27 students from the borough’s twin town of Besançon saw British farming for themselves during a week-long stay.
Their first stop was a visit to Longley Farm in Holmfirth, where they watched dairy processing.
This was followed by a trip to the Farnley Estate at Farnley Tyas to see the diversification of agriculture and woodland management.
The students also turned their hand to dry-stone walling and visited a local farm shop to sample the home-made produce.
