The Co-Op Farming and Food team is support Open Farm Sunday this weekend, with an event at East Pitforthfie Farm near Brechin on Sunday, June 5.

Open Farm Sunday is the national open day for the farming industry, and The Co-Op are joining in by helping 11 farms to open to the public, giving them the chance to experience first-hand what it means to be a farmer and to experience a day in the life of a farmer.

The event at East Pitforthfie Farm runs from 11am to 4pm and is a free, fun and educational event.

A spokesperson for The Co-op Farming & Food team said: “The aim of the day is for the public to learn about farmer’s daily responsibilities, from cultivating the land to planting the grain or feeding the animals as well as gaining an understanding of all the hard work involved in producing fresh food and managing the countryside.”
