Why open a farm to the public?
People living in towns and cities may not realise that farmers not only produce high quality food but also play an important role in protecting the environment and in ensuring that rural communities thrive.
This is why open farms days are a great way for young people and adults to experience the daily life of farmers, and learn more about agriculture and the way our food is produced.
