LEAF calls on farmers to stand proud on #OFS17

Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF) has urged farmers to ‘open your gates’ and ‘stand proud’ at next year’s Open Farm Sunday on June 11.

 

Registrations for the LEAF Open Farm Sunday will open on Tuesday November 1.

 

Visitor feedback from this year highlighted that one in five had never visited a farm before but almost 90 per cent learnt something new during the visit.

 

At a time when a future farming industry remains uncertain, LEAF said farmers should use this ‘critical time’ to demonstrate the vital role they play in delivering a wide range of public goods.

 

Get involved

Open Farm Sunday manager Annabel Shackleton said she is pleased that Open Farm Sunday is helping to bridge the gap between farming and the public.

 

“Farming is a sector which impacts on all our lives, yet so many people know so little about it,” Ms Shackleton said.

 

“All farmers can get involved - whether hosting a farm walk for 20 or more neighbours, or opening for hundreds of visitors, each event is equally important.”

 

To encourage more farmers to host an event, LEAF will be offering a new programme of webinars, blogs, Q&A and case studies to give farmers the knowledge, ideas and confidence to engage with the public on Open Farm Sunday 2017.

 

Chief executive of LEAF Caroline Drummond said: “Open Farm Sunday provides the perfect platform for farmers to shine a light on what they deliver and why supporting British farming matters.

 

“Everyone can and should get involved in Open Farm Sunday, regardless of the type or size of farm and help the public discover the world of farming.”
