Open Farm Weekend is Back on Farms for 2022!
This year’s Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend is making a welcome return back on farms on Friday 17 June (for schools) and Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 June for the public and planning a packed schedule of activities to showcase Northern Ireland food and farming at its best.
This is the first time since 2019 that farms are able to host in-person and 18 from across the province are looking forward to throwing open their gates and welcoming visitors inside.
The last two years saw Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend take on a virtual format, and although the in-person interaction with farm families was missed, the event did reach a new audience from across Northern Ireland and beyond. With this in mind, selected farms will be streamed through Open Farm Weekend’s social media channels throughout the Friday and Saturday.
The initiative, led by the Ulster Farmers’ Union, with Bank of Ireland renewing its title sponsorship, is yet again set to capture the imagination of families and foodies from across the province and give a real behind the scenes snapshot of the local farm to fork story.
