Open Farm Sunday 2018 was our most successful yet, we had more visitors than ever before. The weather was amazing, plant sales went well, cakes sold out and we had a reporter from the Sheffield Telegraph visit us and write a double page spread about us in the paper.
We had a lot going on at the farm on that hot sunday in June, it’s an event that we love doing: showing people what we do.
The event in many ways is the highlight of our year, it gives us a specific date to aim for, and we make the farm the best we can make it for that day.
We served tea, coffee, cakes and buns, Elaine managed to keep the tea flowing.
As you can see the weather was just superb, and it was lovely to be able to share our fantastic plot of land with our local community.
The younger farm members did a brilliant job (as they have done in previous years) and really took the time to both prepare and deliver tours of the farm.
Kids activities were well received and everyone seemed to have a good time.
Plant sales were very effective this year.
Harry as head bee keeper gave a number of talks on our magnificent bees and how we produce our honey.
Zoe sold some of her wonderfully creative craft.
After the public had left we all kicked back and relaxed with some pizza’s baked in our pizza oven.
Beers were had and the consensus was that the day had been a great success.
