Open Farm Sunday is an annual nation-wide event managed by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming). The initiative encourages farmers from across the country to open their farms to the public, allowing local people to see the wide range of work that farmers and land-managers do on a day-to-day basis on UK farms.
