We are delighted to be opening up Raby Home Farm to the public this year as part of the national LEAF Open Farm Sunday event.
On 9th June 2019, farms up and down the country will be giving people a chance to experience everyday farm life first hand and learn more about how the food on our plates is produced.
We’ll be open between 10am and 4pm and entry to the farm is completely FREE.
Come and see our oilseed and cereal crops, which include barley and wheat and meet some of our animals. We have sheep, our famous herds of Longhorn cattle and, of course, our herds of red and fallow deer.
Learn about farm stewardship, how we care for our environment and much more.
