Celebrating Farming and Food
Open Farm Sunday 2015, was a huge success with hundreds of farms across the country opened their gates welcoming 250,000 visitors.
This year’s date is 5th June 2016 and across the south west you can visit farms including:
- Hillside Farm on the Isles of Scilly
- Tregullas down on The Lizard
- Bosavern Community Farm near Penzance
- Markwell Farm near Saltash
Visit a Farm
On the Open Farm Sunday website you can search for a farm near you which is taking part. Choose from farms offering hosted tours, or Meet the Animal experiences. Perhaps you’d prefer a self-guided walk and to buy some farm-fresh produce. Search for your local participating farm, and see what they have to offer.
There will also be a Photography Competition – submissions are judged by experienced industry professionals, and first prize is £100 Asda gift card.
