The article presents the diary of dairy and arable producer Tim Lewis who will participate in the Open Farm Sunday in England on June 1, 2008. Lewis finally made time to pick up the phone and register to take part in the event. He managed to persuade a handful of farmers to help him out on the day. His biggest worry is planning for an unknown number of visitors. He farms 1500 acres in partnership with his father Gerald and wife Nathalie. Their tenanted mixed farm includes a cow dairy herd plus followers, combinable crops and vining peas.
