If you are looking for somewhere to take, and educate, the kids in a fun way, this weekend, consider Open Farm Sunday. Simply type your post code in here and find out what some of your local farmers have organised.

Hopefully you will find a place to buy better, fresher, food that is often cheaper than the supermarket!

Open Farm Sunday was first introduced in the UK in 2006 by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming). The first year was intended to be a pilot run of the project, but interest was high and over 300 farms opened their gates to the public. Ever sinse farmers have taken it up and made it their own and following the seventh Open Farm Sunday in June 2012, nearly one million people have visited a farm.

As BigBarn’s mission is to reconnect consumers with producers and encourage trade we fully support Open Farm Sunday. We hope that those farmers selling direct and use the day to persuade local people to switch from the supermarket to buying local.
