Poultry integrator Avara Foods has welcomed members of the public on to its supplier farms as part of Open Farm Sunday 2019. The firm said it had partnered with three of the farms that supply it with poultry for the annual event devised by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) as a way for the public to learn about farming first hand.
The campaign unites all aspects of the agricultural industry to showcase the goods and services UK farming delivers, and the positive impact it has on all our lives.
This year Avara Foods welcomed people to chicken and turkey farms. Visitors had the chance to see birds’ rearing environments, learn how we breed and care for them, and even handle chicks.
“We’re proud to be part of the LEAF Open Farm Sunday programme,” said an Avara Foods spokesperson. “As part of our commitment to be transparent and educate consumers about where foods come from, we relish the chance to work with our farmers to introduce the public to the agri-foods process.”
