On Sunday 9th June, farms across the country are opening their gates and inviting the public to come and find out more about farming and what farmers do. LEAF Open Farm Sunday has now been running for 14 years, offering a wonderful opportunity for visitors to get closer to farming and to the people that make it happen.
Each event is unique, each farm is different and every farmer too, but what they all share is a passion for farming, amazing expertise and a commitment to caring for the countryside. Some farms have been passed down through the generations, others are managed by those who have chosen farming as their career; each has its own special story to tell and LEAF Open Farm Sunday is the ideal chance to come and hear it.
Come and meet the farmers and their families, as well as the many other professionals they work with, that help them farm sustainably. Together they manage valuable resources like water and soil, and habitats for wildlife to thrive. Discover all that goes into producing the food we eat and the many other ways that farmers contribute to our daily lives.
LEAF Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic experience for all ages – visit www.farmsunday.org to find a farm opening near you.
