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.”

On 28th Jan­u­ary 2017 Farm­ers Guardian pro­vid­ed some use­ful infor­ma­tion for farm­ers, ask­ing Do you want to be an Open Farm Sun­day host?’
