Open Farm Sunday manager Annabel Shackleton said the day was a celebration of farming, and offered a “fantastic opportunity for farmers to engage with the public”.

“It also brings real business benefits to farmers who get involved, including better community relations and raised local profile.

“We are urging farmers to join in the celebrations and register early so they can benefit from all the free support and advice we offer,” she added.
