Don’t Forget – Open Farm Sunday 2012

Now in it’s 7th year, Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic project which has seen hundreds of farmers across the UK opening up their farm for one Sunday each year.

This is a fantastic day for everyone to see and to discover at first hand what it means to be a farmer.                 

Take time to listen to the birds, soak up the scenery, experience the smells of the farmyard and really get in touch with the land that feeds us. So come and feed your senses on Open Farm Sunday.

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

So, whether you are young or old, you should find something to suit you!

This years participating farms are listed here on the Open Farm Sunday Website.
