Visiting a farm on Open Farm Sunday, this weekend, is a wonderful way to discover the world of farming.
Modern farming is incredibly diverse and impacts on all of us – from the food we eat, to clothing, medicine, fuel and manufacturing. Agriculture is vital to our future too – so go along and find out more!
Hundreds of farms across Britain, including Naylor Flowers at Moulton Common, will be opening their gates for Open Farm Sunday.
It is a great day out for the whole family and a unique opportunity to discover what farmers do and the vital role they have in protecting and enhancing the environment.
Naylors will be open from 11am-4pm and activities on offer will include tours of flower fields, exhibitors including machinery, children’s activities and competitions, flower arranging demonstrations and a flower arranging competition, modern and vintage farming machinery, refreshments in aid of charity, live music and an art club.
Admission is free.
All types of farms take part in Open Farm Sunday and most events are free. Activities on the day can range from farm walks and trailer rides, through to sheep shearing, milking demonstrations, bug hunts and machinery displays.
There will also be a chance to explore the technology and science behind farming and food production, and find out about the business aspects of modern farming. So round up the family, put on your wellies and head to the countryside to meet a farmer and have a great day out experiencing all the sights, sounds and science of the farm.
