That’s the message from farmers across the country, as they prepare to open their farm gates on Open Farm Sunday on June 13.

This annual event organised by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) is a must for anyone interested in food, farming or the countryside.

A visit to a local farm on Open Farm Sunday is a great way to meet the farmers who grow your food and see how they care for the countryside. It could include a tractor and trailer ride, an opportunity to see sheep being sheared, cows being milked or even chicks hatching.

There will be plenty of farm walks and nature trails organised, which are ideal ways to enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside.
