Open Farm Sunday

Open Farm Sunday is the farming industry’s annual open day when hundreds of farmers all over the country welcome visitors onto their farms to discover the world of farming.
Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1000 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.

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.
Open Farm Sunday takes part every year in the first week of June. Check the website for this year's date.
