Open Farm Sunday set to return on 12 June

Thousands of visitors are expected to flock to East Anglia's farms when the countryside's annual family open day returns next weekend.

Open Farm Sunday will be held on June 12, organised by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming).


Farms across the region will throw open their gates to show the public how their food is produced and what farmers do to manage the environment.

They range from major vegetable and salad growers and historic arable estates to dairies and mixed family farms - offering a mix of farm tours, livestock experiences, nature hunts and machinery demonstrations.


In north Norfolk, public events are being held at the Holkham Farming Company and Deepdale Farm in Burnham Deepdale, and in mid Norfolk people can visit Castle Farm at Swanton Morley or Gressenhall Farm near Dereham.


Near Great Yarmouth, Edfords Care Farm in Mautby and The Grange at Rollesby will both welcome visitors.


Other events include those being held at Old Hall Farm in Woodton near Bungay, Hundred River Farm at Sotterley near Beccles, and OW Wortley and Sons at Holmebrink Farm in Methwold.


And in the Fens, there are open days at G's Fresh at Barway, near Ely, and Park Farm in Thorney, Cambridgeshire.
