Celebrate Sunday June 17th by visiting a UK farm. The day is Open Farm Sunday, when farms up and down the country are welcoming the public to learn about what they do. The day is organised by the group Linking Environment And Farming (LEAF).
From Inverness to Cornwall, about 170 farms are putting on guided tours, self-guided walking routes and static displays as part of the event. Visitors will be able to take part in a national pollinators survey. This will involve standing near a crop area for five minutes to count pollinating insects before doing a comparative count in a different habitat.
