Every year, Lower Hewood Farm takes part in Open Farm Sunday, a national scheme managed by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming). Opening up the farm to the public, we present some of our artists’ projects alongside farming activities.

The farm will be open on Sunday 5 June from 12 – 5pm and a Farm Tour & Scything Event will run from 3pm – no need to book, just turn up.
A exhibition, On Landscape #3, the third in a series of projects by Minna Kantonen, Dafna Talmor and Emma Wieslander exploring representations of landscape will be on display in the converted barn. For more information about the On Landscape Project, visit the project page.
