Open Farm Sunday

Yesterday was Open Farm Sunday, a national event aiming to increase popular awareness of what farms do and where food comes from. This is the second year running that we have taken part, and this year we were visited by about 70 people. It was a hot sunny day and we had plenty of cake!
Despite the hot day we still had a campfire in the farmyard, just for the enjoyment of it.

Plus our ever popular cafe, with cake, pizza slices, soup, biscuits, tea and coffee.

A tour of the market garden took in polytunnels, outdoor cropping, and the fruit cage.

A tour of our cob roundhouse, now approaching completion.
Craft workshops and face painting in the farmyard.
A big thank you as always must go to our wonderful team of volunteers who helped make the day so affirming and enjoyable, and to everybody who came to support the community farm.
