Sunday was an open farm event across the country where farms opened up for the general public to visit. My local farm is Forty Hall which is part of the Forty Hall estate and houses the vineyard, parkland and Forty Hall house. The day coincided with a picnic in the park event, various bands, craft and plant stalls and a mini farmers market. It was a hot day and swathes of people were making their way to the farm and to the park to have picnics and enjoy a family day out.
I walked through the park and through the farmyard away from the noise and gaiety to seek refuge in open places away from the main event. Just a few minutes away peace and tranquillity was found.
