Take part in LEAF Open Farm Sunday, 11th June 2017

The need for farmers to get public support for the vital work they do has never been more critical and LEAF Open Farm Sunday provides the ideal platform to do just this. Join hundreds of farmers across Britain and take part in the farming industry’s annual open day on Sunday 11th June.

Leaf

Explain to visitors the work that you do and how it impacts on our lives – from providing nutritious food to managing the environment.  Visitors are keen to learn about everyday farming tasks and are amazed to see the skills, technology and science behind modern farming.  Even in remote rural areas you will be amazed how many people don’t fully understand the vital work farmers do.

Events can range from a private farm walk for neighbours, through to a full open day. It is up to you the size and format of event you organise. There are lots of free resources and support available to you from the organisers, LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming).  All registered host farmers will receive a copy of the Host Farmer Handbook. For inspiration and support from experienced host farmers, watch recordings of the OFS Bitesize webinars published at www.farmsunday.org and join our private Facebook group.

For more details and to register your event visit www.farmsunday.org and then order your free resources from LEAF. If you have any questions, speak with the Open Farm Sunday team at LEAF: 024 7641 3911.
