To celebrate Open Farm Sunday, Moy Park’s Barr Poultry Farm in Lincolnshire welcomed hundreds of visitors through its gates and provided guests with a unique opportunity to discover first-hand what it means to be a farmer.
As part of the Open Farm Sunday initiative, the leading food company spoke to members of the public about farming, animal nutrition and welfare, and how food gets from ‘farm to fork’. Visitors also took part in a range of activities including tractor rides, an inflatable assault course and a Moy Park BBQ. Children were given the chance to see the inside workings of a busy poultry farm through a special viewing gallery, and meet some baby chicks to learn about how the birds are cared for.
Speaking about Open Farm Sunday, Katie Baxter, Moy Park Agricultural Planning Manager said:
“Open Farm Sunday is a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old, to find out what it means to be a farmer and the fantastic work they do – from producing our food and enhancing the countryside to providing a range of goods and services. We were delighted to welcome so many visitors to our Barr Poultry Farm and help teach local children and families about the journey of food from farm to fork.”
