Open Farm Sunday on June 9th was a great success and the Muddy Matches team turned out in force at the event at Glebe Farm in Podington.
MM’s Lucy was on the entrance welcoming people into the event and MM’s Emma was in charge of the nature walk.
Highlights of the event included the tractor rides, stroking the animals and of course the nature walk; which took in a tour of the farm’s biomass wood chip burner and a visit to Bedfordshire’s only waterfall. › Continue reading

What is Open Farm Sunday?
Open Farm Sunday is an annual event, which started in 2006 to encourage farmers to open up their farms to the local community for the day.

Spring is in the air and planning for the big countryside festivals is in full-swing; in fact we’re adding more dates to the countryside calendar each week as the events organisers announce the dates, so that you can plan for the year ahead. We’ll also be adding to the Who’s Going? page so that you can arrange to meet up with other members at events across the UK and Ireland.
Although many of the countryside shows and agricultural events happen in the summer time and early autumn, the springtime is a great time for point-to-point events if you’re looking for an outdoor date idea. Point-to-points make a fantastic first date idea as you can get to know each other through a shared interest and in a public place. You don’t even have to be a horse lover to enjoy a day out at a point-to-point as there is a fantastic atmosphere at the events.
Our countryside calendar contains a link to every point-to-point in the UK and Ireland, so you don’t need to go anywhere else to start planning an equestrian date
We have been working hard updating our Countryside Calendar with details of lots of country shows, equestrian events and other countryside social events for 2012. Why not take a look to see what’s going on in your region?

The best of luck to Team Muddy in the Round the Island Race this Saturday!
Very jealous – I’m sure they’ll all have an amazing time!
