See what others are saying about Open Farm Day!
It is a lot of work to tidy up for Open Farm Day, but is a good incentive to get that work done! We get great feedback from the visitors, this year we had three thank-you emails from the public the day after the event. One visitor was a staff member in local retail grocery store, and they told us they had no idea how much went into the product that they put out on the shelves. That helps build appreciation.

Just wanted to let you know that we were really pleased at the response to our first open farm day. We had over 100 visitors and everyone was really interested in our summer savory harvest and blending operations. The public was amazed by everything. We will certainly do Open Farm Day again.

Although we were nervous about doing it, it turned out to be great fun. It was refreshing to have people come to the farm, not because they had an issue to discuss, but simply to learn about how we farm. We had help from other dairy farmers in the area, and the day helped build a sense of pride in everyone involved with the farms.
