LEAF Open Farm Sunday is going online this year, so that you can explore the world of farming from the safety of your home!
We have compiled a great playlist of local Chilterns farmer videos for you to enjoy, so head on over to our Youtube to start your farming adventure! Five farmers will take you around their farms, showing you chalk grassland, historical buildings, their livestock and more!
Will there be an 'in person' Open Farm Sunday this year?
LEAF are closely monitoring government advice and are exploring ways in which we can adapt on farm events to run in a safe and practical manner, whilst following government guidelines on social distancing. We very much hope to welcome you onto farms across the UK for LEAF Open Farm Sunday on the 20th September. Please keep an eye on https://farmsunday.org for the most up to date information.
For those of you interested in the history of farming in the Chilterns, check out this vintage black and white film from 1939, showing 'The Chiltern Country'- a bit of a contrast to our modern videos created today!
