Open Farm Sunday 2011


2011 date to be announced for June

Fantastic team work from farmers across the country, together with support from the food and farming industry and stakeholders, all contributed to make LEAF’s fifth Open Farm Sunday (13th June2010) a great success.

Early indications show that 420 farms opened and that between them they welcomed approximately 150,000 visitors. Support for this annual event came from the highest level with Defra ministers Caroline Spelman, Secretary of State for Environment and Jim Paice, Food and Farming Minster also attending events.

Every year tens of thousands of people get great pleasure in visiting a farm. They come to simply enjoy the countryside or to learn more about where their food comes from.
