Visit a farm on Sunday 9 June, for a fun-filled, educational family day out!

Open Farm Sunday, farming’s annual open day, is back for its 18th year!

Open Farm Sunday, farming’s annual open day, is back for its 18th year! Taking place this Sunday 9 June, farms across the country will open their gates to the public. 

Organised by farming charity LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), events offer everyone a fantastic opportunity to see farming with nature at first hand. Visitors can discover the incredible work our farmers do as ‘Guardians of the Earth’ to produce our food sustainably, while caring for the environment and wildlife. 

Open Farm Sunday is a great family day out to meet the heroes of the day: our farmers. Each event is unique, as each farm is different and every farmer too, but what they all share is a passion for farming and telling their story, amazing expertise, and a commitment to farming with nature. 

There will be opportunities to hear from farmers about where some of our favourite foods, from bread and cereals, to milk, meat, fruit and vegetables come from. Many events will have interactive activities on the farm, such as worm counts, pond dipping and hunting for mini beasts, alongside the chance to learn how farmers manage a healthy environment for wildlife to thrive, exploring field margins, hedges and woodland too. It promises to be a fun and fascinating day out for visitors of all ages! 

So, clear the diary, pop on your wellies (not obligatory!) and find your nearest farm to visit at
