Five tips for a successful Open Farm Sunday

The Business Barn

Open Farm Sunday, an initiative launched by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) in 2006, will attract thousands of families to the countryside to see and understand the work farmers do this weekend.

If you’re opening your farm to the general public this Sunday and are having some last-minute nerves, particularly about answering tricky questions, here are five tried and tested tips to help get you through the day.

1. Be honest
Answer questions truthfully because your passion and knowledge for farming and understanding of the industry will shine through. Openness and transparency will help to promote trust from visitors.

2. Stay positive and confident
Enthusiasm is infectious. Talking about all the positive things in farming and what it does for the countryside will mean your audience feels as interested in and excited about farming as you are.
