The article discusses how several farmers conducted their open days and how they prepare for Open Farm Sunday to be held on June 1, 2008. Nick Rowsell, who has taken part in Open Farm Sunday for the past two years, makes a point of speaking to every visitor in person. He says that the idea is to attract people who drive past the farm every day and show them what happens on the other side of the hedge. Edward Baxter decided he wanted to attract as many people as possible to Open Farm Sunday on his cereal and beef farm near St Andrews, Fife.
