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 (Linking Environment and Farming): 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 first-hand 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!

Meet the Gregory's!

Meet our organic dairy farmers Tom and Sophie! Tom and Sophie have been at Home Farm for 7 years and produce over 2 million litres of Arla organic milk each year. Unfortunately Covid-19 has meant many of our farms, including Tom and Sophie, are unable to open this year. Due to this we have teamed up with them to share a snippet of what a day entails as an Arla Farmer. The family are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors back on farm next year!
