Welcome to Farmeco Open Farm Weekend on 7 and 8th June


Farmeco, Home Farm, Screveton, Near Bingham is welcoming families from the local area to visit this weekend, 7th and 8th June and see a real working farm in action and to see how their food is produced in an environmentally sustainable way. Opening hours are from 10.30 to 5.00 on Saturday and 11.00 to 3.00 on Sunday.
The 660 acre enterprise focuses on growing wheat, oats and barley as well as sheep and pigs and a small area for fruit and vegetables. It has 20 acres of woodland with footpaths and tracks. It also has a carbon neutral straw-baled building used for educational and community courses such as seed to sandwich courses for children, bread and cider making for adults.
With the majority of food now being purchased in the supermarkets, the farm philosophy is to reconnect food production with the consumer in its local communities. This is achieved through its continuing community education programmes and its Open days.
On Saturday visitors can enjoy trailer rides round the farm, meet the animals, bee keeping, sheep shearing, farm demonstrations, pizza making and competitions. On Sunday they will be able to relax and enjoy trailer rides and meeting the animals plus looking over the farm and its machinery.
As a committed sponsor of LEAF’s Open Farm Sunday, the crop protection manufacturer BASF will be supporting this event at Screveton and will have staff on the farm ready to answer questions about growing crops and about its campaign Farming the Biggest Job on Earth.
