At Arla, we recognise the importance of supporting our dairy farmers to create connections, build awareness, trust and understanding for people about how their food is produced.

We also acknowledge that supporting our farmers and sharing the huge range of goods and services dairy farming provides is a key part of delivering more sustainable farming. We therefore sponsor LEAF. An organisation delivering more sustainable food and farming for the UK.

What is LEAF's Open Farm Sunday?

LEAF’s Open Farm Sunday is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories. It is a fantastic opportunity for Arla farms and farms across the UK to open to members of the public. The events allows everyone to discover firsthand what it means to be a farmer and the inspiring work they do to produce our food and enhance our countryside.

Each event is unique but in previous years our Arla farmers have provided: farm walks, nature trails, tractor rides, demonstrations on how to milk a cow, mini farmers markets or farm shops. The list is endless!
