Well over 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. 


Farmer feed­back

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.”

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.”
