On the 10th June join us at the Ecocentre and be part of The Great British Farm Day.

We will open our gates, along with hundreds of farms all over the country for the LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2018.

As the farming industry’s annual open day, it offers a fantastic chance for people to discover real farming at first hand and see for themselves how their food (and much more besides) is produced.

It is also a great way for farmers to shine a light on what they deliver and why supporting British farming matters.
