LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2023 Impacts!

Our Impact report is out now, and we’re delighted to share with you the impact that collectively you have had through opening your gates in June! Dive into this year’s incredible achievements and discover how we’re bridging the gap between the public and farming.

The results clear­ly show the huge val­ue of farm vis­its in demon­strat­ing the indus­try’s com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­i­ty, boost­ing bio­di­ver­si­ty, enhanc­ing the envi­ron­ment and deliv­er­ing nutri­tious food — today and for future gen­er­a­tions! Some of our highlights: 

Imme­di­ate Impact: 

  • 170,900 vis­i­tors
  • 21% were vis­it­ing a farm for the first time
  • 89% said they felt more encour­aged to buy British food
  • 87% said vis­it­ing a farm had increased their trust in British Farming
  • 88% said they learned some­thing new about farming

Last­ing impact:

  • 96% say they now have a greater appre­ci­a­tion of the work farm­ers do
  • 94% feel more con­nect­ed to farmers
  • 93% have a bet­ter under­stand­ing of what sus­tain­ably pro­duced food means
  • 64% say that as a result of attend­ing an event, they are now doing things dif­fer­ent­ly – such as buy­ing more local pro­duce, or sup­port­ing farm shops.

We extend heart­felt thanks to our ded­i­cat­ed farm­ers, helpers, sup­port­ers, and curi­ous vis­i­tors for mak­ing it all pos­si­ble. Togeth­er, we’re sow­ing the seeds of a sus­tain­able future!
