Open Farm Sunday Success

More dairy farms than ever opened their gates for Open Farm Sunday on 9 June 2013, welcoming thousands of visitors to discover the story behind our food and demonstrate their support for British farmers.

The day was a great success and there was a healthy crop of twitter activity from farmer and members of the public alike showing that agriculture is definitely not lagging behind when it comes to social media.

Lindsay Graham, a visitor to one of the many open farms, tweeted:
"There's a real farmer in his overall + wellies! Explaining to family about milking @OpenfarmSunday @ourcowmolly #ofs"

While Kemble Farms highlighted the great things that people learn and remember from the day: 
@OpenFarmSunday Q: What was the most striking thing you remember?
A: "how happy and clean the cows are" #greatfeedback#KembleFarmsLtd."

If you visited a farm and took pictures you can enter them in the Open Farm Sunday Photography competition for a chance to win £100 of ASDA vouchers. For more information on how to enter visit the Open Farm Sunday website.

Next year Open Farm Sunday will be held on Sunday 8 June 2014.
