Open Farm Sun­day and Open Farm School Days

Cre­at­ing con­nec­tions and build­ing aware­ness and under­stand­ing for peo­ple about how their food is pro­duced, where it comes from and the huge range of goods and ser­vices farm­ing deliv­ers, is a key part of deliv­er­ing more sus­tain­able farming.

LEAF Open Farm Sunday

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day, man­aged by LEAF (Link­ing Envi­ron­ment And Farm­ing), is one of the farm­ing industry’s biggest suc­cess sto­ries. Since the first Open Farm Sun­day in 2006, over 1500 farm­ers across the UK have opened their gates and wel­comed 1.8 mil­lion peo­ple onto their farm for one Sun­day each year. 

It is a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty for every­one, young and old, to dis­cov­er at first hand what it means to be a farmer and the fab­u­lous work they do pro­duc­ing our food, enhanc­ing the coun­try­side and all the goods and ser­vices farm­ers provide.

Each event is unique based around the farm’s indi­vid­ual sto­ry. Activ­i­ties dur­ing the day may include a farm walk, nature trail, trac­tor and trail­er rides, demon­stra­tions, pond dip­ping, activ­i­ties for chil­dren, a mini farm­ers mar­ket or farm shop.
