LEAF Open Farm Day - This Sunday!

Have any plans this weekend? Sunday is LEAF Open Farm day, an annual event in which visitors can go to participating farms to learn more about farm­ing, and farm­ers the chance to talk about what they’re so proud of: British food and farming!


Unfortunately, with Covid restrictions still in place, the event will be on a smaller scale than hoped for. All farms will be following covid regulations and practising social distancing, but events will be held outdoors so there is a low risk of transmission. Although LEAF Open Farm is taking place all over Britain, local restrictions will be adhered to, which means here in Wales that guid­ed farm tours can take place so long as social dis­tanc­ing can be main­tained.


Farms open­ing for LOFS will be offer­ing vis­i­tors a vari­ety of on-farm expe­ri­ences from guid­ed walks and farm tours to machin­ery dis­plays and pic­nics on the farm. In Wales, there are two participating farms - Argae Cottage in Llandrinio and Blaenrheon in Brecon. Check out the LOFS website here (https://farmsunday.org/visit-a-farm) to find the farm closest to you.


What are you waiting for? Head down to your closest farm this Sunday, enjoy some sunshine, and help LEAF celebrate their 15th anniversary!

Can’t make it this weekend? On Sun­day 26th Sep­tem­ber 2021 LEAF Online Farm will fea­ture Face­book live vir­tu­al farm tours across Britain, so put the date in your diary to vir­tu­al­ly meet more British farm­ers!
