Berrow beef farm to open its gates to visitors on 'Open Farm Sunday'

Berrow Beef & Lamb is to open their farm gates to visitors for 'Open Farm Sunday' today (11th June) to show the fascinating world of farming.

As well as being a fun and informative day out for all the family, the event from 11am-4pm gives visitors an opportunity to see at first-hand all that farmers do and the impact their work has on all our lives.

Berrow Beef & Lamb is based at Faircott Farm, Brent Road, TA8 2JU (Between the Berrow Triangle and the medical centre). It will open from 11am until 4pm and admission cost will be free.

On the day you can see cows, sheep, adorable lambs and poultry. There will also be guided tours of the farm and leading informative nature walks in the fresh air, with tractor and trailer rides.

For the lovers of tractors and farm machinery, there will also be static machines to admire and have a selfie with, plus demonstrations including hay baling and bale wrapping. Local fencing expert Ian Morgan will be demonstrating his skills.

There will also be demonstrations of how sheep shearing is done, giving visitors insight into how the animals are cared for.

Refreshments are available to buy on site and include Berrow Beef and Lamb BBQ, homemade cakes and a range of drinks.

The event is promoted nationwide as 'LEAF Open Farm Sunday' managed by Linking Environment And Farming. It has become one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories - since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1500 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 1.8 million people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.

Sarah Welland from Berrow Beef & Lamb told "The world of farming is often misunderstood. There is so much to discover at our farm. Do come and join us on Open Farm Sunday and for a day of fesh air and fun, there is something for the kids (big and small) to get involved with. My family and I are proud of the work we do and really looking forward to welcoming everyone to our farm. A big thank you to the event supporters Mole Valley Farmers, Axe Valley Veterinary Practice and NFU Mutual."
