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.
