At this free family-friendly event you'll have the opportunity to explore our farm, view a variety of farm machinery, meet our animals, and enjoy demonstrations presented by industry experts. 

We’ll be putting on a number of exciting displays and demonstrations for you to enjoy. Storytelling, cattle shows and ‘Farmula 1’ pedal tractor racing are just a few of the activities our visitors have enjoyed in previous years.

If you're interested in farm machinery, you'll have the chance to view and ride our latest tractors and trailers. Over-25s will be able to get behind the wheel and take part in a Tractor Driving Experience.

We’ll reveal a further update of activities closer to the event. Here’s what we have confirmed so far:

  • Animal zone – meet our lambs, goats and llamas and watch a sheep shearing demonstration. We’ll take you on a walking farm-tour which will include a visit to our milking parlour and cow sheds. You’ll even get to have a go at milking a prosthetic cow!
  • Kids zone – keep the little ones entertained with a variety of arts, crafts and face painting.
  • Food zone – grab a bite to eat from our BBQ and cool off with a Lovington’s ice cream. We’ll be creating a comfy picnic area for you to lay out your tartan rug – perfect for taking a break while relaxing on our beautiful rural campus.

About Open Farm Sunday

Open Farm Sunday is an event run on farms across the UK, coordinated by the Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF) charity. LEAF is dedicated to improving the agriculture industry through integrated farming. The nationwide celebration has been very successful, on some years attracting over half a million visitors!

With each farm running a unique event with different activities, animals and displaying the various types of work they do, no two Open Farm Sundays are the same. Open Farm Sunday is supported by an impressive network of well-known sponsors including; DEFRA, John-Deere, Jordans, Farmers Weekly and many Supermarkets.

We're proud to be one of the farms partaking in this RSPCA-assured event.
