If you haven't heard of Open Farm Sunday let me tell you a little more. The annual open day takes places in June each year and has been running since 2006. Hundreds of farms across the country open up their doors so we can discover the work that our farmers do. Each event is unique to the farm so events will vary but you can find out more information here.
We absolutely love attending because the boys get so much out of the event. They absolutely love looking at all the farm machinery and sitting in the drivers seat. There are animals to look at, feed and touch. There is the chance to learn about where our food comes from. They get to plant sunflowers and cress to take home. And there is a huge hay pyramid to climb. This year we got to see sheep shearing, seeing the sheep without wool is hilarious when you are four and six! The children were even given goodie bags to bring home with stickers, activity magazines and seeds. It is such a lovely event for all ages and it is free!
