A key part of Open Farm Sunday is showcasing to visitors that farming is a hi tech, professional industry utilising the best of science and technology to farm sustainably.
That’s why one of our 3 key themes for Open Farm Sunday is promoting science and technology on the farm. We are delighted to be working with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), BASF and other partners to bring you science and technology themed activity ideas and resources.
We are asking all our host farmers to try to highlight at least one aspect of science and technology during your Open Farm Sunday event. Thank you for your support.
