SUNDAY PAPERS

Co-operative Group opens its gates on Open Farm Sunday

Organised by Linking Environment and Farming, the scheme aims to showcase British farming by welcoming visitors to farms across the country. 

Visitors to The  Co-operative Group’s farms will learn about the crops grown and also hear about the group’s From Farm to Fork outdoor learning experience for primary school pupils and its Habitat Heroes scheme to protect and preserve endangered wildlife. Other attractions will include machinery displays, tractor rides and bee-keeping and cookery demonstrations.

The six Co-operative Group farms to open on Sunday are Blairgowrie in Perthshire, Coldham in Cambridgeshire, Down Ampney in Gloucestershire, Goole in East Yorkshire, Stoughton in Leicestershire and Tillington in Herefordshire.

Richard Quinn, head of The Co-operative Farms, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Open Farm Sunday and give visitors a greater appreciation of the importance of farming, both in supplying food and protecting wildlife within its natural habitat.

"By supporting Open Farm Sunday, we will be able to reach out to the communities in which we farm and our customers and members, and showcase our role within the local community and the wider farming industry and as a key, quality supplier to The Co-operative’s food stores."
