Gorstage Green Farm (01606 853193; www.farmer4aday.co.uk) in Northwich, Cheshire, has launched a ‘farmer for the day’ experience, so wannabe milkmaids and cowboys can learn to milk the cows, round them up, fence fields and stack straw bales, before heading down the pub for a proper farmer’s lunch. It costs £175.
See British agriculture at work by visiting a farm for the day. Charles Davis at Gorstage Green Farm in Northwich, Cheshire, will show you howto milk the cows and stack bales at his Farmer 4 a Day guided tours (pounds 60 for half a day). The Soil Association’s website has a list of organic farms that are open to the public, and ones that offer family farm trails, shops and accommodation.
And with 59 city farms in the UK, urbanites need not feel left out. The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens has details of activities in your area.

Three generations of the Davis family have raised dairy cattle on the farm and have over 60 years experience and a pedigree Holstein herd. Working within the farm your day could include milking, feeding, looking after the calves, trimming the cows? feet, or mucking out the bull! If you really want to find out more about farming, don’t mind a bit of mud and want to learn how the animals are cared for this is a great experience.
