A number of farms across the country will be hosting an open day on Sunday, 11 June, to showcase what farming entails and what impact it has on the lives of members of the public.

The organiser, Linking Environment and Farming (LEAF), say the day is an opportunity for people to see the kind of hard work that happens behind the scenes in the industry.

Modern farming is incredibly diverse and impacts on all of us - from the clothes we wear to the medicines we take and the food we eat.

The first Open Farm Sunday took place in 2006 and since then over 1.8million people have attended at a farm anywhere from Cornwall in the south-west of England, to Orkney off the north-eastern coast of Scotland.

Organisers say this year, farms all over the country are again invited to take place - demonstrating the everyday work farmers do including harvesting food, and showing the latest technology they use for sustainability.
