The farm is run by Nottinghamshire County Council and employs staff with mixed abilities and offers training to people with disabilities.

Councillor Stuart Wallace, chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Adult Social Care and Public Health Committee, said: “Last year’s event went down a storm and we’re hoping for a nice day to attract even more people to this activity-packed event.”
