On Sunday 10 June, award-winning cheesemaker, Quicke’s will throw open the gates at Home Farm for LEAF Open Farm Sunday, inviting cheese lovers of all ages to explore this stunning corner of Devon and meet its world famous cows. Joining hundreds of farms across the UK, all giving people the chance to witness real farming first hand, the Quicke’s team will be ready to tell the often surprising story of what goes into a wedge.
Championing cheddar on the farming industry’s annual open day, the Home Farm line-up will include an outdoor children’s play area, cheese making tours, farm tours and a chance to stock up on clothbound cheese and other local produce at the Quicke’s Farm Shop. Learning about everything from grass and grazing to cheddaring and grading, the event will offer visitors a rare insight into life on a farm that has been nurtured by the same family for 14 generations.
The Quicke’s LEAF Open Farm Sunday event will take place at Home Farm in Newton St Cyres on Sunday 10 June from 11am to 4pm. Entry is free of charge.
LEAF Open Farm Sunday, managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories. Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1,600 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed 2 million people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.
