Open Farm Sunday is the opportunity to see first hand how farms work.

The James Hutton Institute was not open for Open Farm Sunday on 8 June 2014. This year we held a LEAF Technical Day for Farmers on Tuesday 3 June. See the exhibits at Farmers' Technical Day.

Update from LEAF ... eBrief 17 June 2014 LEAF reports another record breaking year, with estimates so far of more than 200,000 people visiting farms on Open Farm Sunday, more than the record breaking year of 2013. In total 375 farms were open for visitors on the day. Open Farm Sunday next year is on 7 June 2015.
