There are some fabulous events coming your way so don't forget to put them in your diary!

Open Farm Sunday

When: 8th June

Where: Your local farm!

What: Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic project which has seen hundreds of farmers across the UK opening up their farm for one Sunday each year since 2006! Each event is unique with its own activities - based around the farm’s own individual story. Activities during the day may include a farm walk, nature trail, tractor and trailer rides, pond dipping, activities for children, a mini farmers market or picnics.

Why: It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old, to discover at first hand what it means to be a farmer.

The Lincolnshire Show

When: 18th - 19th June

Where: Lincolnshire Showground

What: The Show has evolved into a one stop event for families, schools and couples looking for a fun, educational and entertaining day celebrating all that’s great about Lincolnshire. The Show’s roots will always be in agriculture, but now shopping, delicious food, attractions and rides all have a place in the 200 acre Showground. The main attractions for 2014 include the amazing RAF Falcons, Broke FMX, a motocross bike athletics group jumping 35 feet in the air pulling unbelievable acrobatic stunts and Jive Pony, a group of riders performing gymnastics on horseback – not forgetting the legendary Sheep Show in the Countryside Area! See us in the Select Lincolnshire Food Court!

Why: Come and sell directly to hundreds and thousands of shoppers directly at THE agricultural event, showcasing everything Lincolnshire. Most notably, a dedicated food court with quality, award winning food and drink. Take the opportunity to network with fellow producers and consumers alike, and find our Select Lincolnshire for Food display! An event not to be missed!
