Sunday 9th June | 10am – 4pm 

We are delighted to be part of the national LEAF Open Farm Sunday event.

On 9th June, 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. Open Farm Sunday will feature our local produce market, exciting tractor rides and much more!

We’ll be open between 10am and 4pm.


What’s On


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. A hand picked selection of local artisans and rural organisations will form a fantastic Farmers Market.


As always, Tom our Estate Chef will be rustling up a storm with our BBQ. The Yurt Café open as usual, offering a delicious selection of savoury dishes as well as sweet treats and ice-cream, this is the perfect place to refuel during your adventures at Raby.
