Open Farm Sunday 2015
One of our favourite events on the food education calendar is Open Farm Sunday.
Since 2006 they have been encouraging farmers to open their gates and welcome in families to celebrate all that is good about British food and farming. It's been such a success it's even been featured on The Archers! We now have Open Farm School Days giving school groups the chance to get out onto a farm. To get you in the mood, watch this film and don't forget to visit a farm with your family on Sunday 7 June.
