Celebrate farming with LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2021

This June, farmers across the country will once again open their gates for a national celebration of farming and all it delivers. LEAF Open Farm Sunday returns on 27th June, for the fifteenth annual celebration of British farming.

This is the day each year when hun­dreds of farm­ers open their gates to offer the pub­lic a fan­tas­tic and infor­ma­tive day out. Vis­i­tors are able to dis­cov­er at first-hand how farm­ers sup­port our well­be­ing – through their care of the envi­ron­ment, the sus­tain­able pro­duc­tion of our food and the man­age­ment of the countryside.

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day is a unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet our farm­ers, and to see and hear about what goes into pro­duc­ing sus­tain­able, cli­mate pos­i­tive, nutri­tious food. The pub­lic can find out about how sea­son­al sum­mer crops like pota­toes, aspara­gus, rasp­ber­ries, sal­ad, veg­eta­bles and bras­si­cas are grown, how farm­ers are man­ag­ing resources like soil and water and learn how sta­ples like meat and dairy pro­duce get from field to plate. Farms of all types and sizes will be open­ing their gates, with a host of activ­i­ties planned such as guid­ed farm walks and nature trails, trac­tor and trail­er rides, and dis­plays of mod­ern, high tech farm machinery.

As well as pro­duc­ing the food we eat, farm­ers are also the cus­to­di­ans of our coun­try­side; from foot­paths and hedgerows to wood­land and mead­ows, it is the farm­ers we have to thank for main­tain­ing Britain’s’ won­der­ful land­scape. Vis­i­tors to a LEAF Open Farm Sun­day event will be able to learn more about this work, direct from the farmer themselves. 

Annabel Shack­le­ton, Man­ag­er for LEAF Open Farm Sun­day said: After such a chal­leng­ing year, we hope that peo­ple will once again be able to vis­it a farm on the 27th June for LEAF Open Farm Sun­day. One last­ing impact of the pan­dem­ic is people’s increased inter­est in the prove­nance and sus­tain­abil­i­ty of their food, as well as a grow­ing con­cern around cli­mate change. Farm­ers play a vital role in sup­port­ing the health and well­be­ing of our soci­ety with the nutri­tious food they pro­duce, the coun­try­side they man­age and the steps they take to enhance and pro­tect the envi­ron­ment, through cli­mate pos­i­tive, regen­er­a­tive farm­ing. LEAF Open Farm Sun­day pro­vides a won­der­ful insight into all that farm­ers do. We are real­ly look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing the pub­lic and shar­ing the amaz­ing sto­ry that is British farming.” 

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day takes place on 27th June 2021 — vis­it www​.farm​sun​day​.org near­er the date to find a list of farms tak­ing part.
