Well over a two hundred and fifty thousand people attended LEAF Open Farm Sunday events to show their support for British farming and have a fun, informative family day out.

This was our best ever event. The weather played ball, but more than that, we have improved our offering, and as the event grows each year and the good word spreads, more and more people attend.”
William Church, The Jersey Royal Company

Our first OFS and a resounding success! We had about 600 people through the gates and the day had a great, relaxed, family vibe. The animals on display are always a crowd pleaser and of course tractor and Trailer tours are a big hit. Plenty to see and lots to do for the children really helped engage the public with the event and hopefully helped to bridge the disconnect between farming and the public.”
Meg Walters, Lower Hurst Farm

Open Farm Sunday 2019 was a huge success. With farming and food supply in the news so much over the last 12 months visitors where keen to know more about how we are producing food and looking after soils and the wider environment.”

Visitor feedback

The farmers from old to the young farmers were so friendly and happy to share their knowledge. Wonderful day!”

What a wonderful day for the family. Lots of fun and lots of learning for all involved. It was lovely to hear the farmers sharing their work so passionately.”

It was a privilege to be able to see inside a working farm, and we were blown away by the generosity of the day.”

It’s stimulating, interesting, fun and fabulously amazing way to enjoy a working farm whatever age.”

An honest insight into a lifestyle of working with and for the countryside.”

A brilliant family day out. So many kind and caring farmers showing off the best they can do. They really care and are happy for everyone to know it. Love farming.”

The size and scale of the farm was amazing and how well managed and clean everything was. It was interesting to see the full cycle of the farm from the ground to the plate.”

There’s nothing to hide about farming. The public, more so now than ever want to know where their food comes from. We need a farmer three times a day; breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
