Farms across North Yorkshire are throwing open their gates to the public on Open Farm Sunday this weekend.

The annual event is organised by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) and is a must for anyone interested in food, farming or the countryside.

Among those taking part is Beadlam Grange Farm near Helmsley.

It is the second year they're opening their farm to the public.

It'll include farm trailer rides to see growing crops, cows and calves, sheep, and the energy crop, miscanthus, grown for Drax power station.

Their roman villa plus children activities etc will also be open.

Owner Mark Rooke's told Minster FM: 

"It was a great success last year.

"It is a national event and an opportunity when farmers can one day a year open their farm to the public and teach the public about all sorts of agricultural related happenings and workings on the farm, from crop production, animal breeding policys, diversification, quad bike handling etc.

"We have a good mixed farm which includes a farm shop & restaurant, 300 acres and 70 suckler cows and calves.

"We are opening our farm here for the Ryedale area, we are 2 miles east of Helmsley on the A170."
