Hainey Farm in Barway threw open its doors on Sunday to welcome members of the public to the annual Open Farm Sunday event.
Visitors young and old enjoyed a tour behind the scenes at the farm, which is owned by John Shropshire and the G’s group and produces hundreds of tonnes of salad and vegetables crops every year.
There was a bug corner, where youngsters were able to get up close to many insects that are vital to farmers and their crops, a grow your own lettuce stand, pedal tractor racing and a large display of farm machinery.
Tractor and trailer rides ran throughout the day and there was also an array of food and trade stands featuring the crops grown at G’s.
Demonstrations were also given by chefs from Ely, including from the Prince Albert pub and Poets House.
