An East Yorkshire organic farm and bakery are throwing open their farm gates to the public this weekend as part of the national Open Farm Sunday.
Side Oven and Carr House Farm based at Foston on the Wolds near Driffield are gearing up for their second Open Farm event tomorrow after the success of last year’s day which saw over 400 people visit the family run farm and bakery.
Jessica Sellers, of the Side Oven commented; “We had a great day last year and after so many lovely comments from visitors we felt we wanted to be part of the Open Farm Sunday event again.
It’s lovely to have so many visitors interested in how we farm organically and to see the positive impact this has on both the land and the wildlife. This year we also have some brilliant demonstrations lined up to celebrate traditional rural skills and as ever our bakery will be bursting with a wide range of freshly baked breads, croissant, cakes and much more!”
Activities at this year’s free event will include guided farm walks at 10:30am and 1:30pm and farms nature trail as well as demonstrations of traditional skills including a spinning wheel, chair caning and clip rug. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet the farms flock of Longwool rare breed Teeswater sheep.
Hot and cold food will be available throughout the day including locally made Mr Moos ice cream and drinks from the Side Ovens own home grown fruit cordials and The Little Red Berry Co who use the farms organic fruit in their artisan liquors. For more information visit their website www.sideoven.com
