A day on the farm

Have you ever wondered what goes on at an organic farm? Are you curious to know where your fresh food comes from? Want a pleasant and educational day out for the children? With summer here, I’m sure you are looking for fun days out in the country, especially those of you with young children. You could just do the usual picnic in the country or visit a quaint village, or sit in a country pub, but believe me, visiting an organic farm is far more interesting.

There are many organic farms located around the country open to visitors, each with its own character. Some farms offer guided tours, others have farm trails you can walk or you can just browse around a working organic farm. Most of these farms have a farm café and a farm shop where you can buy the produce at its freshest. If you think a day is too short, some farms offer residential stays.

The countryside is our connection to the Earth and we should all spend at least some time in a more natural environment. This sounds like an idyllic way to spend a sunny Sunday enjoying nature and learning more about the food we eat.
