Wayland Farms has successful Open Farm Sunday

On Sunday 10th June 2018, Cranswick hosted an Open Farm Sunday event in North Norfolk at Westacre Farms.

Westacre Farms have been working in partnership with us on our sustainability initiative, Second Nature, as one of our breeding units is based there. Wayland Farms Ltd recently became a member of LEAF.

They opened their gates to visitors for LEAF Open Farm Sunday welcoming over 800 visitors.

Cranswick ran guided tractor and trailer tours around the farm to show visitors the different crops and livestock, which also included sheep (and shearing demonstrations) and a beef suckler herd. Visitors were dropped off opposite the pig unit where we spent 15 minutes briefing them on outdoor reared pig production and environmental stewardship. These proved very popular and we received positive feedback.

This event was one of hundreds of farms across the country that welcomed visitors as part of the farming industry’s annual open day.
