OPEN DAY PEAK INTO FARMING

AROUND 80 people took the unique opportunity of taking a peak into the life of farming yesterday during an open day at Briddlesford Lodge Farm, Wootton.

As part of the national Farm Open Day scheme, the Griffin family opened their farm to visitors of all ages to show how milk goes from the field to the breakfast table and everything in between.

Families had the chance to get up close and personal with the farm’s award winning pedigree Guernsey Cows as well as exploring the vast land surrounding the farm, which was originally purchased by Charles Griffin back in the 1920’s.

Baby calf rested alongside the farm’s very own Bluebells Café, which uses as much of it’s own produce as possible and produce from the local community.

Three tours, each operated by a farm family member, took visitors through the silage storage, across grazing fields and into the farm’s milking parlor to see hands on how milk is collected from the Cows.
