The Open Farm Day will be held all over Estonia for the seventh time in July 2021. Many farms and agricultural producers will be opening their doors (or rather their gates!) to visitors. The information about the opening times iwill 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!
Please see the map on https://www.avatudtalud.ee/et/kulastajale - the ones with blue balloon are opened for the whole weekend. Also you can download the convenient mobile app Navicup which contains all the necessary information about the farms and helps you to find them.
Come and have a staring contest with a goat or try steering a combine harvester!
The Open Farm Day is organised by the Ministry of Rural Affairs, the Agricultural Research Centre, the Estonian Chamber of Agriculture and Commerce and the Central Union of Estonian Farmers. Also involved in the running of the day are local Leader action groups and the ‘Kodukant’ Village Movement of Estonia.
The organisation of the Open Farm Day is financed from the Estonian Rural Development Plan 2014-2020 and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
