    Including tours, welly-wanging & tractor rides. Excludes Northern Ireland

    Expired

    Get your wellies ready, round-up your herd and get moo-ving because on Sun 12 Jun, over 200 farms will open their gates for the LEAF (Linking Environment & Farming) Open Farm Sunday event.

    To find out if your local farm is participating, use this Farm Finder – it lists all the info for each farm's event, including opening times and how to book. Entry to each farm differs, although many will require you to book pri­or to attend­ing and spaces may be limited.

    The majority (about 90%) are free, however some may charge for activities or ask for a donation, which you can check on the farm’s event listing. If no entrance fee is mentioned on the website, it shouldn't be charging, although it's best to check with the farm before you trot on down. 

    LEAF told us this year's focus is on health and showcasing farming’s commitment to producing nutritious food more sustainably. Some of the activities taking place at the farms include:

    • Tractor and trailer rides
    • Guided farm tours 
    • Fruit picking 
    • Meeting the animals, including sheep shearing and milking demonstrations 
    • Bug hunts
    • Welly-wanging

    Each farm is unique with different farm activities, wildlife, landscapes etc, so it's worth taking a look at the event and farm descriptions to see what's available. For example, we spotted a cow milking demonstration at a farm in Hertfordshire, horse riding in Cumbria, and butter making in Sheffield.

    • Organised by LEAF, Open Farm Sunday aims to give visitors the opportunity to see first-hand the work farmers do producing food and managing the countryside.

      If the weather's bad, visit the website for updates and contact the farm before travelling in case it's been cancelled.

      If there isn’t a farm near you to visit, take a look at the 'Scavenger Hunt' activity to keep the family entertained on a local walk. You can also download the 'Countryside Code' for guidance on how to respect the countryside and those who manage the land whilst you're trotting around.

    The LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Open Farm Sunday event is back after being closed last year due to the pandemic. So get your wellies ready, round-up your herd and get moo-ving because this Sun 27 Jun, over 100 farms re-open their gates.

    This year due to Covid restrictions events are smaller and you need to pre-book. To find out if your local farm is participating, use this Farm Finder – it lists all the info for each farm's event, including opening times and how to book your place. Spaces may be limited, so don't be sheepish. 

    LEAF has told us there won't be as many activities taking place this year, but instead there will be the following:

    • Machinery displays – some farmers will invite local vintage tractor clubs to put on a display
    • Self-guided walks  – each farm is different, but some will have birding and wildflower walks
    • Farm tours – a farmer or host will give you a group talk and tour of their farm, with some lasting up to 1.5 hours

    Each farm is unique with different farm activities, different wildlife, different landscapes etc, so it might be worth taking a look at the event and farm descriptions to see what's available. For example, we spotted a milking demonstration at a farm in Norfolk, sheep shearing and sheepdog demonstrations in Lancashire, and meeting Highland cows in Stirlingshire.

    If there isn’t a farm near you to visit, take a look at the 'Scavenger Hunt' activity to keep the family entertained on a local walk. You can also download the 'Countryside Code' for guidance on how to respect the countryside and those who manage the land whilst you're trotting around.

    Out of the 104 farms included, 95 have free entry – six of which have said there will be fees for some activities including £1 tractor and trailer rides. LEAF has told us nine farms will be charging an entrance fee this year – see the list of prices for each farm.

    If no entrance fee is mentioned on the website, it shouldn't be charging, although it's best to check with the farm before you trot on down.
