Support Your Local Farmer at Open Farm Sunday

Mar 14, 2024 | Featured, News

We are seeking BSSS members who would like to volunteer and support with farming’s annual open day. Established in 2006, Open Farm Sunday is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories and provides a fantastic opportunity for visitors to learn more about farming, the countryside and soil!

This year’s event will be held on Sunday 9 June 2024 and we are delighted to be supporting LEAF by pairing willing BSSS members with farmers who would like soil to be a prominent feature at their farm’s open day. Unsure of what you may have to offer a local farmer? Read our Get Involved in Open Farm Sunday blog for more information, top tips and activity ideas.
