Pig units with facilities that would allow them to take part in Open Farm Sunday, which this year will be held on June 8, can register for the event now.
This year’s event has the theme Celebrate British Farming and Food, and has attracted the backing of five major retailer sponsors – Asda, The Co-operative, M&S, Tesco and Waitrose – as well as the support of major agricultural organisations including the AHDB, Defra, NFU, BASF, Syngenta and John Deere.
Registrations are already at a record level for this time of year with 130 farms registered by the beginning of March, and to help farmers who are opening for Open Farm Sunday, LEAF is organising a roadshow of free information events around the country, bringing together new and experienced host farmers to share ideas and top tips on how to host inspiring visits.
The full roadshow programme can be found HERE
Also taking place during the fortnight either side of Open Farm Sunday is the Open Farm School Days initiative where thousands of school children will visit a farm to find out how their food is produced.
