Thousands of people flocked to Hall Farm at Stainton le Vale for the Open Farm Sunday event.

And all things countryside were there for all the family to see.

Demonstrations of sheep shearing, tractor and trailer rides around the extensive farm site and self guided walks gave an insight into how farms work, while a vast range of information stalls took a look behind countryside management and food production.

Market Rasen’s Rotary and Round Table Clubs teamed up to serve burgers and hot dogs to the many visitors, alongside the many other food providers.

The venue was used once again as the midway point for the Wolds Tractor Run too, which set off from Ludborough to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

And Hall Farm also hosted a two-day sheep dog trial, which saw a total of 74 entries, plus doubles on each day, all helping to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
