Open Farm Sunday - 12th June 2011

I've been tweeting about it and RTing @OpenFarmSunday, so thought I'd blog a bit more about it.  Their tag line is "Discover more about British Farms" and we read it as working farms opening to the public for 1 day a year, and we were very keen for the children to see the farms and understand where their food comes from.

Entry to the majority of farms farms is free, although some may apply a small charge for activities.  Open Farm Sunday is organised by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), who are a registered charity, that assists farmers and producers to manage their farms as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
For more detailed info head to Open Farm Sunday 

We have been to Hammonds End Farm in Harpenden and before that Pilkington Farm in Hitchin.  As well as the animals to see, and the workings of the farm there were also tractor and trailor rides, live bands and fab food.

This year Chris is doing the triathlon in Windsor in the morning, so will be heading to a farm in Berkshire, having just had a quick check there are a few to choose from!

So for a fab family day out, I'd recommend it highly!
