Federated Farmers prepares for Fam Day this weekend

6:04 pm on 11 March 2011

Farmers who will be participating Federated Farmers' annual Farm Day are getting ready to open their gates on Sunday, to give town and city people a chance to put on their gum-boots and experience a little bit of rural life.

It's the third year the event's been run, and this year 10 farms close to urban centres are taking part, in regions stretching from Northland to Otago.

South Canterbury and the Bay of Plenty will be holding their Farm Days a week later, on Sunday, 20 March.

And Federated Farmers has cancelled North Canterbury's farm day this year, out of respect for those who have suffered losses in the earthquake.
