A number of workshops to help prepare host growers are taking place this month (March), and LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), the environmental charity which organises Open Farm Sunday, believes the event will be even bigger and better than last year's.
The workshops are free to attend and there are 21 taking place on farms across the UK. Farmers and growers will be able to meet with others who have hosted open days before and learn from their experiences.
Manager Tom Allen-Stevens said of OFS: "This is one day in the year when you can give visitors to your farm a real insight into how their food is produced and how the countryside around them is cared for."
He added: "There are real business benefits, too, for those farmers who host events: it can help you improve sales, learn new marketing skills, and build staff morale and sense of pride. You can gain new contacts, or simply improve relationships with your local community."
