Crowds flock to ASDA farms for Open Farm Sunday

As I’ve mentioned here before we at Asda are delighted to be a major partner to Open Farm Sunday and it’s been great to hear of the many excellent events hosted by Asda farmers last weekend.

Open Farm Sunday

One of these was one of our major vegetable suppliers Stewarts of Tayside, with more than 500 visitors enjoying a visit to Tofthill Farm, Glencarse, on Sunday June 12.

Farm visitors had the opportunity to go through a programme of activities designed to follow the crop production cycle from seed to store.

One of the big hits as always at these events was the tractor and trailer tour of the farm, with the adults taking in a moving commentary whilst the younger participants were just absorbed with the occasion.

Helping our customers understand the care and attention that goes into producing great food for Asda is just one of the benefits of Open Farm Sunday.

And while Open Farm Sunday may have been and gone that doesn’t mean to say the learning should stop. If you want to know more about how Asda farmers produce great food for you why not visit our stand at one of the many agricultural shows we’ll be attending this year.
