Open Farm Weekend returns this weekend (15-16th June) for the second year of food and fun on real working farms - including three in our area.
This year 15 real, working farms will open their gates to the public as part of Open Farm Weekend, all of which are free to visit.
They are Broughgammon Farm, Ballycastle which is open Saturday and Sunday 10am-6pm.
Also Carnany Farm, Ballymoney which is open Sunday 11am-2pm.
Also Morrison Dairy Farm, Ballymoney which is open Saturday 10am – 3pm.
Broughgammon is a mixed use farm, run by the Cole family close to Ballycastle. Eldest son Charlie might be a familiar face to some visitors to Broughgammon as he featured in the first season of the BBC’s popular “Farm Fixer” series.
Carnany Farm is a five minute drive from Ballymoney town centre and is a mixed use farm. The farm is run by local man, Robert Skelton, his brother Thomas, and son Philip, who together farm 550 acres of land in the area.
The Morrison family have been farming at The Hills, Deffrick for over 70 years and Lyle and Lynda are the third generation of the family to do so.
