AN opportunity to spin honey and learn about wildlife is on offer to people who attend a farm open day at Burleigh Hill Farm in St Ives.

Farmer Mark Schwier is opening his farm to the public along with hundreds of other farmers in a national farm open day taking place on Sunday, June 11, from noon.

Mr Schwier said: "There are so many speakers coming to the open day it is going to be a real treat for people. Anyone interested in food or the countryside will love the open day as it will be a superb opportunity for people to learn more and it's all for free."

The open day has been co-ordinated by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) to promote farming and strengthen the link between food and the countryside.
