For weeks we've been saying that we need rain and at last we seem to have got some. Just in time for Open Farm Sunday!
But despite the rain yesterday, crowds of people turned up to Gate Farm, Great Leighs for Open Farm Sunday. James Hawkes invited everyone there to show how food is produced and how it relates to where we live. So there were displays showing what is grown and what it’s made into, a wildlife habitats laboratory, crop establishment trail, guided tractor and trailer tours, sheep and cattle, grain store tours, activities for children and the chance to ask lots of questions. We really enjoyed helping and hope that all the visitors had a good day.
There’s lots of information about farms all over the country on www.farmsunday.org and competitions to enter.
