The event on Sunday, June 12 (11am-4pm), will give visitors the chance to learn more about the inner workings of the farm and how their food gets from field to plate.

There will be the opportunity to meet the animals, go on a woodland walk, watch machinery and food demonstrations and much more.

Northfield Farm owner Jan McCourt said: “There is a lot to celebrate about British farming and food – so do come and join us and find out more.

“We will be taking guided walks around the farm to see the cattle and sheep in the fields. Our farm shop will be open, and we will be cooking our award winning sausages and burgers on the day.

“We are also currently renewing the many miles of fencing on the farm, so a fencing demonstration might also be taking place, plus possibly silaging and sheep shearing depending on the weather.

“My family, our team and I are really looking forward to welcoming everyone and showing them around the farm.”
