The Linking Farming and Environment organisation was hoping to see over 120,000 people visit more than 340 farms which had swung open their gates for the event.

Farm manager at Honingham Thorpe Farms, Jamie Lockhart organised the joint venture with Morley Agricultural Foundation.

He said: “It went fantastically well. We had 1,000 burgers in and they sold out so we definitely had over 1,000 people and I would say maybe more than that.

“We had a farmers’ market in the main food hall with all sorts of food and there was a good atmosphere in there.

“There’s been a lot of people learning about farming and sheep shearing. A lot of families with young children but a good mix, with some couples coming up from the village, so I’d say we had an eclectic mix of people.

“We had a steady stream of people all day so it was very good.”
