'It's fantastic to reconnect people with the countryside'

Farmers across the Midlands have thrown open their doors to the public today.

It is part of Open Farm Sunday, an annual event giving people the chance to find out where their food comes from and the challenges facing the industry today.

Farmer's daughter Kate Spence says the number of people that do not know a loaf of bread 'starts off in a field' and hopes today's open day teaches the origin of food to visitors At Great Wood Farm in Grantham.
