Visit a farm for free in June!

Around Sunday 9th June each year Open Farm Sunday means hundreds of UK farms open their gates to the public free of charge, giving all of us a chance to discover real farming at first hand.

It’s a great opportunity to take the kids to see real farming in action, meet the people who work on the land, see animals and farm machinery and gain an understanding of the role of farming in our lives.
