What a fantastic opportunity for our little ones to learn about where their food comes from. There will be plenty of activities such as tractor rides, walks in the countryside, pond dipping and much more.  Why not make a day of it and take a picnic to enjoy with family and friends, down on the farm? With many participating farms in Suffolk this is an event not to be missed!  Take a look at LEAF’s Virtual Farm Walk! in preparation to your trip:) and don't forget your camera to enter the Open Farm Sunday 2015 Photography Competition.
