24 and 25 July 2021, 10 am to 5 pm
Animals and plants, exciting technology,
genuine farm food, workshops and tours

The Open Farm Day will be held all over Estonia for the seventh time on Sunday, 25 July 2021 from 10 am to 5 pm. Many participating farms and agricultural producers will be opening their doors (or rather their gates!) to visitors on Saturday, 24 July as well. Information about the opening times will be shown on the map

You will get to see farms of all sizes, interesting animals and plants and some cool farming equipment and machinery. You can also try real farm food, go on excursions, take part in workshops and much more. Each farm will be running its own programme showcasing what makes it special.

The Open Farm Day represents a great opportunity to discover how local food is grown and what modern farming and agriculture involve.

When was the last time you came face-to-face with a goat or took the wheel of a combine harvester? Come to the countryside and you can do both!

 

Maps and apps

Please see the map at https://www.avatudtalud.ee/et/kulastajale - the farms marked with a blue balloon are open on both Saturday and Sunday.

 

Come and have a staring contest with a goat or try steering a combine harvester!
