Throwing open the farm gates

From Nine To Noon, 9:35 am on 26 February 2020

Farmers around the country are opening their farm gates this Sunday as part of a new project to help reconnect Kiwis with the land and where their food comes from.

The Open Farms Initiative will see participating farms open to the public for free events on March 1st, with 51 farms taking part this inaugural year.

Kathryn talks to two participating farmers: Greg Hart and his family will host about 100 guests at their sheep and beef farm at Mangarara Station in Hawke's Bay, and Jess Hill and her family will also host around 100 guests at their Dreamview dairy farm and creamery near Raglan.
