Caroline and Ross Millar are set to welcome hundreds of people on to their farm as part of Open Farm Sunday on Sunday 5th June.

They will open the doors of the family farm at North Balluderon, two miles north of Dundee, to allow people to experience farm life and inform the public about where their food and drink comes from. Open Farm Sunday is a national initiative organised by Leaf (Linking Environment and Farming) and farmers throughout the UK are taking part in this national initiative 

 Quality Meat Scotland has produced a video of the Millar family getting ready to welcome hundreds of visitors on to their farm which can be viewed on the Go Rural website

There are a wealth of activities organised including self guided tours with maps, five stations with experts in Cows/beef,  Sheep/Lamb, Barley, Potatoes, Chickens/eggs, sheep shearing demonstrations, a machinery display, Food Shed with food and drink to enjoy on the day, and food and drink to buy to take home. There will also be a children’s educational and activity area.

The event is free but you must register for tickets. There will be the opportunity to give a donation to two chosen charities at the entrance to the event - Cancer Research UK and Brain Tumour Research.  Some other Scottish farms taking part include Craigies, Muddy Boots, Ardardan, The Store, Cairnton and Peel Farm.

Thanks to those businesses and organisations sponsoring the event at North Balluderon Farm.
