Open Farm Sunday is only 3 weeks away as I found out after looking through the diary this morning, Help! We have put out the signs and are releasing a press statement tomorrow detailing the events of the day. For you, avid bloggers and readers a sneak preview of what you can expect to experience on your visit to Overbury Farms. There will be tractor and trailer rides around Bredon Hill, these have been lapped up by previous visitors, booking is required so if you want to come along for that ride then contact the Estate Office (01386 725110), and speak to Suzie. They will book fast and it's a first come, first serve basis! Whilst the tractors are off around the Estate, Chris Tallis Farm Machinery http://www.christallis.co.uk/will be demonstrating 'hands free' tractor driving! There will also be sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and other animals to learn about. There will be some refreshments in the cricket club, where the bar will be open to quench dusty throats after lots of talking (mine). A short nature walk, collection fun and games should also be in place to amuse little ones. Rumour has it that there will be some ice-cream to buy as well! Don't forget that the whole day is organised 'free of charge', although ice-creams and beer will of course need to paid for. Why not try and visit a few farms in the area, there are 5 registered within a 20Km radius of us at Overbury and 18 in 50km radius and make a proper day out.
