Hot off the press
The campaign for Open Farm Sunday 2017 is off to fabulous start with the farming press getting right behind our push to encourage more farmers to open for Open Farm Sunday on 11th June 2017.
The farming press have been fully behind the plans for LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2017, with some lovely features and articles. Here we run through a selection of online articles that have recently been published.
2017 got off to a great start with Hort News and Farmers Weekly publishing articles promoting the new OFS Bitesize webinars as a useful watch for farmers thinking of opening, providing a schedule of all the planned webinars coming up.
Talking about the OFS Bitesize webinars Annabel Shackleton, LEAF’s Open Farm Sunday manager said: “There is so much inspiration and experience amongst our co-ordinators and experienced host farmers, so these webinars offer a great platform to share this expertise and provide an easy and interactive way for farmers to engage with the OFS team directly and get a head start on their planning to ensure maximum success for Open Farm Sunday 2017.”
“We’d like to invite everyone, whether they have opened before or are thinking about opening for the first time on June 11, 2017, to join us for our OFS Bitesize webinars.”
