Tortworth Plants - Open Farm Sunday 2019

Open Farm Sunday 2019 - on The Tortworth estate

We are teaming up with the Tortworth Estate, Tortworth Estate Farm Shop & The Farmer's Table Cafe and Tortworth Primary School to organise a FREE, fun-packed, family day out!

Come and visit the estate's organic dairy farm, to learn more about where your milk comes from and what goes into producing it. There will be a chance to ask questions at the farm, and you could even see some of the cows being milked.

  • Take a tractor and trailer ride to visit the dairy farm.
  • Meet the farm animals.
  • Tortworth Primary School Fete - with games, children's craft activities, and much more.
