Down on the farm

A DALES farm is throwing open its doors as part of a nationwide event.

Flagg Hall Farm in Flagg is taking part in Open Farm Sunday, an annual event organised by Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF).

Visitors on Sunday, between 11am and 4.30pm, will be able to see how a large-scale dairy farm operates and how dairy milk is produced. There will be tractors, machinery and a children’s petting area.

There is also the chance to see the day-to-day life of a cow. At 2.45pm there will be a milking demonstration, and guided walks explaining how the farm works will happen throughout the day.
