Get ready for Open Farm Sunday this weekend!

By Contributed Item in Local People

Goldsland Farm in Wenvoe will throw open its gates to the public on June 11 to celebrate Open Farm Sunday.

It is hoped that the Sainsbury’s-sponsored event at Goldsland Farm will encourage visitors to discover the world of British farming.

Staff from a nearby branch of the supermarket will pop on their wellies and join farmers at Goldsland Farm to run an action packed series of activities throughout the day including scarecrow building and seed planting.

There will be refreshments, and visitors can join in the fun by watching sheep shearing demonstrations or taking part in tractor and trailer rides.

There are also lots of activities planned for children including face painting and a display of vintage tractors.

Abi Reader, dairy herd manager at Goldsland Farm, said: “The best thing about being a farmer is working outdoors with the cows, the land and with nature. We take great pride in producing fresh milk every day for our consumers while also contributing to the local and national economy.

“We hope to see lots of visitors on Sunday for what promises to be a great day out for all of the family.”

Open Farm Sunday, the farming industry’s annual open day, is managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) and provides an opportunity for the public to meet farmers and build their knowledge and trust in British farming and food.

Now in its 12th year, Open Farm Sunday has welcomed more than 1.8 million visitors to sites across the UK since it started in 2006.

Slade Farm Organics in St Brides Major and Ty Tanglwyst Farm in Pyle, Bridgend, are also getting ready to receive to visitors on Open Farm Sunday.
