Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend
The Open Farm Weekend is the perfect opportunity to find out more about how our food is produced and to raise awareness of the importance of the local supply chain. Throughout Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June you will have the chance to reconnect with the countryside and the local farming community which is responsible for producing the food we all enjoy.
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the farmer, on certain farms, as well as sampling delicious food and learning about the importance of supporting your community by buying local. Each farm event is unique and will be organised primarily by the host farmer so it is best to check out www.openfarmweekend.com to see participating farms in your area and what fun activities they have taking place on the day.
Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend is being delivered by Ulster Farmers’ Union and is sponsored by Bank of Ireland UK and supported by NFU Mutual, Asda, Livestock & Meat Commission Northern Ireland and Irish Farmers’ Journal. The weekend would also not be possible without the help and resources of Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, CAFRE, the Northern Ireland Food and Drink Association and Food NI.
