Over 1000 farmers and horticultural enterprises across the UK have opened their doors since the event first started in 2006, as a way for local communities to discover first-hand what it means to work in our industry.

The Farplants Group as a whole, sell around 11 million plants per year, and other members of the cooperative will be hosting Open Farm events in future years.
The event runs from 11:00 to 15:00. Refreshments and home baked cakes will be available, as well as a plant sale, guided tours and a family-friendly pot your own plant area.
Car parking will be available on site, but the event will be cancelled in the case of persistent, heavy rain.
