Over 200 people visited our farm throughout the day on Sunday 27th June to celebrate Open Farm Sunday and to enjoy our beautiful farm and surrounding Chilterns countryside. Many either joined our farmer-led walks which highlighted the different aspects of farming, biodiversity, wildlife or followed our map on a self-guided tour. Sheep dog demonstrations, milking the goat, meet the goats sessions were all a marvel. Well done and thank you to everyone who came, helped out and shared the day with us.
Here are a few quotes from some of our visitors:
“The guided tour was fantastic . Informative, educational, fascinating and easy to listen to.”
“What was the best bit? There are so many things to mention: the many animals, the country environment, genuine friendliness of the farm hosts, the pizza and burgers. Just a brilliant afternoon.”
Please give a donation to help Countryways CIC care farming to help people with learning disability, autism and mental health as well as other education work.
