Around 10,000 visitors flocked to Park Farm at Thorney when it took part in the national open farms weekend event.
Lamb feeding, a sheep show, pick your own fruit, butter making, a farm safari and a kids zone were just some of the activities on offer when the venue opened its doors for the free weekend of family fun.
Park Farm is the administrative hub of MS Smith, MHS Farms and Griffin and Speed Farms with Singlecote Farm being the operational hub.
Across three businesses they farm 1,600 hectares covering an area across North Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire. The team is able to trace its family heritage of farming and drainage in The Fens back for more than 300 years.
Their aim is to grow crops for food manufacturers with mills, cannery and factories within 100 miles of the farm.
