LEAF Open Farm Sunday announcement

Due to the circumstances related to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), it is with regret that LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) has taken the inevitable, safe and sensible decision to postpone this year’s LEAF Open Farm Sunday (LOFS) event to Sunday 20th September 2020.

Due to the cir­cum­stances relat­ed to the out­break of Coro­n­avirus (COVID-19), it is with regret that LEAF (Link­ing Envi­ron­ment And Farm­ing) has tak­en the inevitable, safe and sen­si­ble deci­sion to post­pone this year’s LEAF Open Farm Sun­day (LOFS) event to Sun­day 20th Sep­tem­ber 2020.

This deci­sion has not been tak­en light­ly and the organ­i­sa­tion is ful­ly aware of the impli­ca­tions and dis­ap­point­ment this may cause to host farm­ers and vis­i­tors. How­ev­er, giv­en the chal­lenges that the whole coun­try faces in the com­ing weeks and months, LEAF has been left with lit­tle choice but to post­pone the event to lat­er in the year.

Car­o­line Drum­mond, LEAF Chief Exec­u­tive, said: We have spo­ken to a num­ber of our host farm­ers to under­stand the impact of post­pon­ing lat­er in the year. We are pleased with the pos­i­tive response from our ever enthu­si­as­tic farm­ers, many of whom have indi­cat­ed that they would like to still host LEAF Open Farm Sun­day 2020. Con­se­quent­ly, we have rearranged the date to the 20th Sep­tem­ber 2020.

We look for­ward to wel­com­ing the pub­lic out onto farm at a dif­fer­ent and inter­est­ing time of year, when they will take plea­sure from get­ting out­side and cel­e­brat­ing farm­ing, food and nature. We will con­tin­ue to sup­port farm­ers host­ing an LOFS event in Sep­tem­ber and encour­ag­ing the pub­lic to vis­it a farm and dis­cov­er the world of farming.”

LEAF would like to thank every­one involved with LEAF Open Farm Sun­day for their patience and under­stand­ing at this time and would encour­age any­one with any ques­tions about this post­pone­ment to vis­it the FAQ page on our web­site, www​.farm​sun​day​.org or email the LOFS team [email protected].
