Families are invited to put on their wellies this weekend to celebrate Wythenshawe Community Farm’s 25th birthday.
The farm, on Manchester City Council's Wythenshawe Park off Wythenshawe Road, is celebrating the anniversary with a community open day from 11am-4pm on Bank Holiday Monday, August 31.
Families can look around the farm, next to Wythenshawe Hall, and will be able to sample free range meat that has been reared there, as well as buy plants grown on the farm and locally produced free range eggs.
The event, taking place as part of the City Council's year-long Proud Of Manchester campaign, which aims to encourage residents to enjoy Manchester's green spaces, will also feature a children's disco, bouncy castle and face painting.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Manchester City Council's Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said: "Wythenshawe Community Farm is a wonderful piece of the countryside in the middle of the city, offering children an opportunity to see where their food comes from.
"This event is a great chance for families to have a look around the farm, as well as enjoy the other attractions at Wythenshawe Park."
The farm is open daily from 11.30am-4pm, and until 3.30pm from October to April.
