Open Days At Greatworth Hall Are Perfect Opportunities For The Public To Engage With Farming - The next one will be for lambing 2020! Date TBC.
At two important points of the year we offer an open day here on the farm at Greatworth Hall. The first in the year is our ever popular Lambing themed Open Day where we simply open the gates for you to come and watch the ewes become mothers. Enjoyed by all the family, we invite you to come and hold a lamb, learn about the lambing process; including what we feed the sheep and how we care for them, and enjoy a warm cup of tea/coffee and slice of cake.
The other open day within the year is our Harvest themed day. This is usually held in early Autumn and offers the sights and sounds of harvest. Come and get close up to our machinery; the combine harvester is always a favourite, and see the grain thats been harvested before it becomes your bread or cereal.
Every open day we hold is free to attend, although we do suggested a small donation upon signing in. The reason we ask you to sign in is so that you are aware of the risks involved in visiting a working farm, although the farm will not be working during an open day, it is still an active site and therefore its important that you understand that safety is your own responsibility on the farm. We make it as safe as possible but cannot be held accountable if you do not adhere to the guidance given. We also love to count the numbers at the end of each open day and are constantly overwhelmed by the amount of people who come and get a glimpse of what farm life is like as well as support what we are doing.
