Open Farm Sunday

Open Farm Sunday
We were once again blessed with great weather for our annual event Open Farm Sunday. The event is part of a national campaign to educate people about farming and where our food comes from. Highlights of our event were the display of our machinery, sheep shearing, pedal tractors for our younger visitors and tours of our arable fields in our new trailer.

Trailer tours
The trailer is pulled by the late 7th Earl’s first tractor he brought when he returned from South Africa to look after Holkham Estate in 1973. Compared to modern machines and old ploughs you can definitely see how farming has evolved and become a lot more technical.
We are very excited to offer our visiting schools the option of taking a trailer tour to learn more about where our food comes from and the crops which Holkham Farming Company grows.
