PUBLISHED: 16:00 18 June 2017
An open day gave people of all ages the opportunity to learn about the day in the life of a farmer.
Berrow Beef and Lamb, based at Faircott Farm off Brent Road, opened its gates to visitors on Sunday as part of the national Open Farm Fun Day event.
There was something for the whole family with tractor rides, animal feeding and a fencing demonstration.
Richard Welland and his wife Sarah said they were ‘surprised’ to have more than 1,300 people attend in their first year.
The farm has been in the family for four generations and continues to grow, covering 250 acres of land.
Mr Welland said: “The day was a huge success and it gave people the chance to see how farms work.
“We have had a lot of positive feedback and we look forward to holding the event again next year.”
