People are more engaged, passionate and informed about farming practices and environmental issues than ever, according to farmers who hosted LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2019 (LOFS) events.

National organisers Linking Environment And Farming (LEAF) have reported that over 230,000 people visited a working farm in England, Wales or Scotland on Sunday 9th June as part of farming’s annual open day. The feedback from both farmers and visitors indicates a growing interest in British agriculture, food production, and in particular sustainable farming practices for land management, soil and water health as well as the role of technology.
