A Busy Open Farm Sunday


Open Farm Sunday held on 7th June was a great success at Tregullas, with 500 people taking the opportunity to visit the Amiss family’s farm in Lizard Village. Tregullas was one of over 300 farms open nationally in this the 10th year of Open Farm Sunday, but the only one that can lay claim to being the Most Southerly Farm on mainland Britain!


The event was jointly organised by the Amiss Family and the National Trust who own the farm, and proved to be a fantastic fun day out.










We’re keen to support Open Farm Sunday as it is a wonderful opportunity for everyone involved in agriculture to reach out to the public, and it gives folk the chance to find out more about farming today. It was great to see so many people interested in food and farming.















As ever the animals, including lambs, ducks, goats, and calves proved popular, and the chance to climb aboard a tractor is never one to be missed! This year Mr Dark from Mullion kindly brought across a vintage 1960s tractor with period plough, and their modern equivalent. The new tractor and plough dwarfed the older machinery, showing just how much farming has changed in the last 50 years

Also on offer were wildlife displays, ferret racing, rural craft demonstrations, including sheep shearing, wool spinning and green woodworking, kids crafts and games, plus refreshments were served in aid of Landewednack School and the Girl Guide Senior Section.

Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a lovely afternoon, and to all the folk who came along to join us on the farm.
