Open Farm Sunday: Local Farms to Visit

By 30th May 2019News

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 1600 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 2.2 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.

Open Farm Sunday 2019 is on 9th June and to help you choose which farm to visit this year, we have compiled a list of farms in the Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire area. Click the farm names to discover more information about each event and activities on the OFS website.
