Families are invited to enjoy a day out at the farm next weekend, as part of the annual event, Open Farm Sunday.

The Spence family will open Great Wood Farm, in Boothby Pagnell, to the public for free on Sunday, June 7, to celebrate the national event, which attracted over a thousand people in 2013.

Farmer Brian took a well earned break last year after the huge number of visitors they received in 2013, but is now looking forward to bringing the event back for its fourth year. Brian’s daughter, Kate said: “We’re expecting around 2,000 visitors at this year’s event, last year was so popular. We have some exciting new attractions this year - its definitely a great family day out for all.”

Families can enjoy a day full of exciting farmyard activities including tractor and trailer rides, sheep shearing, vintage and new tractors, farming displays and crafts. There will also be a number of opportunities to meet the farm’s popular animals, including lambs, sheep, hens, pigs, piglets, donkeys and calves.

New to the event this year will be an exciting birds of prey display and a chance to toast marshmellows at the Forest School base camp in the woods.

If that wasn’t enough to keep the children entertained there will also be a number of fun games taking place throughout the day including welly wanging, splat the rat and even a go kart track.
