FARMERS will open their gates and their fields to the public this summer for Open Farm Sunday.
The annual event organised by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) allows the public to see where their food is produced.
Once again Cheshire farmers have signed up to the event which takes place on Sunday, June 13.
Open Farm Sunday offers the public an opportunity to meet the farmers who grow your food and see how they care for the countryside.
Each event will be unique with its own activities – based around the host farm’s own individual story.
Last year 425 farmers threw open their gates to visitors and welcomed 140,000 visitors onto their farms.
At Radmore Green Farm, in Sprustow visitors will be able to see the herd of kid goats, nannies and billies as well as the pigs and beef cattle. There will be the chance to sit on a tractor.
The farm will also be holding a BBQ of sausages and burgers on sale for visitors. For those interested in attending call 01829 260437 or email email@example.com.
The Grange Farm, on Warrington Road in Mickle Trafford will be holding an action-packed day in connection with Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Cheshire BTCV, Trafford Mill & Kitchen Garden, the RSPB and North West Falconry.
Farmer David Rowlands will conduct guided tours and there will be tours of Mickle Trafford Water Mill with Malcolm Padmore. Falconry displays will take place with Andy Cook at the Shrewsbury Arms, Mickle Trafford. BTCV will be working in the Trafford Mill Community Kitchen Garden, and there will be activities with the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.
