OWNERS of an organic farm in Goathurst hosted a successful open day last week, designed to encourage residents to see first-hand how they make their unprocessed produce.

More than 200 people graced Huntstile Organic Farm, as owners Lizzie Myers and John Ridout held their second annual open day event, offering a host of activities and attractions for all who attended.

Farm-goers were treated to a tractor and trail tour of the farm, guided by John, enabling people to see various areas of production.

The younger attendees got the chance to have their faces painted, while the older guests took the opportunity to stroll around the farm's new orchard and beautiful gardens.

The tour also included a visit to the farm's own stone circle, while taking in breathtaking views over Bridgwater and the Levels.

Lizzie was really pleased with how the day went. She said: "The idea is to show people how we do things here and to show and explain how we look after the environment.

"The highlight of the event was the children asking questions, who were taking a genuine interest in how organic produce is made - even more so than last year.

"I think a lot of consumers are becoming more conscious about local produce and people are a lot more aware that if they buy from a local farm they can learn about the food."
