Agri Aware's Open Farm Day
Agri Aware is delighted to announce the launch of its hugely popular Open Farm 2023 event which is returning for the first time since 2019.
This year’s Open Farm is taking place on the dairy farm of Shane Fitzgerald and family in Portlaw, Co. Waterford and promises to be a fun filled, educative day out for all.
Open Farm provides a unique opportunity for Agri Aware to:
- Engage with consumers of all ages from across Ireland.
- Bridge the gap between rural and urban Ireland.
- Promote greater awareness among the non-farming community of modern agriculture, the rural environment, animal welfare, food quality and safety.
- Inform the non-farming community about the crucial role that the farming and agri-food industry play in the Irish economy.
Open Farm 2023 will allow the public to visit and see what a working Irish family dairy farm looks like and how it goes about producing top quality food while doing its bit for the environment.
From seeing cows being milked, walking scenic nature trails, taking in an eye watering machinery display, cooking demonstrations, panel talks and a kids zone for the little ones to enjoy as well as so much more, there will be something for all the family to enjoy on the day.
