#FarmingCAN: 96% of Open Farm Sunday visitors say it gave them a greater appreciation of farming

There are not many opportunities for farming to welcome millions of people through its gates and allow the public to truly see the inner workings of British agriculture. And that is exactly why event has been such a success.

Since its inception in 2006, over 2,121 farmers have taken part in the mission to help educate and engage with the public, welcoming a staggering 3 million people onto farms across the country. This year feels all the more important given that OFS is celebrating its 18th anniversary, and because it is also – once again – a year of great change in the industry.
