PEOPLE will have a opportunity to visit an organic beef farm in West Sussex next month.

Eames Farm, a 900-acre farm on Thorney Island, near Emsworth, will be throwing open its gates to the public for free.

The event is being supported by Chichester Harbour Conservancy.

Visitors can enjoy farm walks, cookery demonstrations and a food market.

Organisers say the day will provide an insight into the challenges faced by farmers as they work in a protected landscape and need to make space for wildlife as well as farm animals.

Children will be kept busy making birdboxes and planting wildflower seeds.

Refreshments will be available and visitors can bring picnics.

Alison Fowler, environment manager, said: ‘We look forward to working with Simon Sprackling, the farmer, to welcome people to one of my favourite parts of Chichester Harbour.’

Entry is free with a small charge for some of the activities. The farm will open from 10am to 3pm on Sunday, July 15.
