Open Farm Sunday

Sunday 27 June 2021
Join us for the morning or the afternoon


Come and join us at Deepdale Farm on Sunday 27th June for Open Farm Sunday. You are welcome to visit us for the morning or afternoon, to learn about the farm, meet the team, meet some of our partners, and join us for a walk around parts ...

... of the farm that aren’t usually open to the public.

Come and find out more about the crops that we’re growing, how we’re farming organically and how we’re managing much of the farm to support wildlife.

Sunday Morning - Take a wander around the machinery and stalls between 10am and 11.30am, and then join us for an optional walk at 11pm until about 12.30pm

Sunday Afternoon - Take a wander around the machinery and stalls between 2pm and 3.30pm, and then join us for an optional walk at 3pm until about 4.30pm

Please book a free ticket for each person in your party, as this is a ticket only event for track & trace and health & safety. Exhibition and walk tickets are separate, so if you would like to do both please book both. We do need to limit numbers on the guided walks.
