AS part of LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Open Farm Day Thorne’s Farm at Stockleigh Pomeroy was open from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, June 10.

Additional fields had been pressed into service to accommodate the large number of cars which descended on the farm, as well as family groups walking up the hill.

Farmer, Anthony Thorne and his wife, were on-hand to explain their work and visitors were free to explore. Anthony grows fruit and vegetables in season and the baskets of strawberries on display were soon snapped up.

In the barn, lambs were especially popular with young visitors. Marian Beresford (from Wordland Cross) demonstrated the art of wool spinning, and a representative from St Boniface Vets was on-hand to answer questions.

Refreshments were available throughout the day.
