Farmers interested in opening their farm on Open Farm Sunday (13 June) are being urged to take part in an online workshop offered by Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF).


The online workshop provides practical advice on how to hold a successful Open Farm Sunday event.

It features farmers offering guidance, suggestions and valuable tips for opening a farm on 13 June, including health and safety considerations and activity ideas too.

Open Farm Sunday, now in its fifth year, helps the public discover and understand the story behind their food, and the dedication and skill of farmers who produce it.

Manager of Open Farm Sunday, Tom Allen-Stevens said: “Holding an Open Farm Sunday event is a very rewarding experience. Events needn’t be complicated to arrange and can be on a scale to suit the farmer and the farm.

“Whether large or small, invite only, or open to everyone, it’s a fantastic opportunity for farmers to engage with their local community and communicate the excellent work they do to produce the food we all eat.”

Those planning to host an event are encouraged to register with OFS as soon as possible.

In addition to the online workshop, LEAF offers farmers free resource packs and support to help them hold an Open Farm Sunday event.
