Gatcombe Farm is inviting visitors to its Open Farm Sunday event on June 10

The Reed Family at Seaton’s Gatcombe Farm will be opening their doors to the public for their third time on June 10.

Last year more than 1,000 people went along to their Open Farm Sunday event.

Admission is free but any money donated will be given to the Devon Freewheelers, who will be in attendance.

Gatcombe, alongside the A3052 Sidmouth to Lyme Regis coast road, is a robotic dairy farm so there is opportunity to see the machines milking the cows through the day, which runs from 11am to 4pm.

You may also want to watch:

With sheepshearing, vet and foot trimming demonstrations and tractor and trailer rides there is plenty of farming activity to keep everyone interested.

Visitors can also see the baby calves, youngstock and dairy cows up close.
