Pig farmers getting involved in Open Farm Sunday
8th Jun 2018 / By Alistair Driver
This Sunday will see hundreds of farmers across the country opening their door to the public for Open Farm Sunday, including a number of well-known pig farmers.
The ones we know of so far are:
Kenniford Farm (Andrew Freemantle) - near Exeter.
Grayingham Grange Farm/Uncle Henry's (Meryl Ward) - near Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
Pockthorpe Hall (the Morgans) - near Driffield, in East Yorkshire.
Moss Valley Fine Meats - they are not opening their own farm due to their high health status, but will be at Our Cow Molly in Sheffield along with LIPs and will be pushing local pork!
Packington Pork - Barton-under-Needwood, Staffordshire.
The Pink Pig Farm - Holme, Lincolnshire.
Congratulations to all those taking part - and if there are more let us know at NPA@npanet.org.uk and we'll add them to the list.
Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1600 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 2 million people onto their farm for one Sunday each year. Managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), it provides a great opportunity for everyone what it means to be a farmer and the fabulous work they do producing our food, enhancing the countryside and all the goods and services farmers provide.
For the past three years, more than a quarter of a million people visited farms on Open Farm Sunday.
