Join Deepdale Farm on Sunday 27th June for Open Farm Sunday. You are welcome to visit for the morning or afternoon, to learn about the farm, meet the team, meet some of our partners, and join us for a walk around parts of the farm that aren’t usually open to the public.

Come and find out more about the crops that we’re growing, how we’re farming organically and how we’re managing much of the farm to support wildlife.
