Leckford Estate Sees Royal Visit for LEAF Open Farm Sunday

On Sunday 11th June, HRH The Countess of Wessex, LEAF’s Honorary President, visited The Waitrose Farm, Leckford Estate for Open Farm Sunday.

Now in its twelfth year and organised by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), LEAF Open Farm Sunday once again saw hundreds of farms open their gates to showcase the world of farming to the public.

During her visit to the Leckford Estate which is also a LEAF Demonstration Farm, The Countess of Wessex met with Andrew Hoad, Head of Leckford and Caroline Drummond, LEAF Chief Executive.  She toured the Estate’s various enterprises including the dairy farm, mushroom unit, orchards, vineyard and Farm Shop and also learnt more about Leckford’s extensive programme of environmental management based around LEAF’s Integrated Farm Management principles. 

Since the first LEAF Open Farm Sunday in 2006 over 1.8m people have visited an event. This year, farms across the country, from Cornwall to Orkney, provided young and old with an opportunity to see farming in action and learn more about the work farmers are so proud to do.
