Sunday 17 June is Open Farm Sunday. Sadly we can't go this year but we had such an excellent time last year. The weather was so wet and miserable I don't think the farmer was expecting anyone to turn up but turn up we did. We visited Hill Top Farm in Steventon (a cattle farm, which sadly isn't open this year) and got a superb tractor tour of the farm and information about all their crops, a look around the cattle, join in with feeding the young cows, tour of the outbuildings which they converted into offices and lease out to bring in much needed money. Hill Top Farm is family run and was lovely to hear about how farming had changed over the years and what new ideas and technologies are being brought to the farm.
Every farm has something different going on, so take a look at the Open Farm Sunday website and see what your local farm is doing, anything from meet the animals, bale climbing, nature trails, tractor rides, farm shops etc
