The annual event, organised by Leaf (Linking Environment and Farming), took place across the country last weekend, including on the fictitious Brookfield Farm on Radio 4 soap The Archers.
For the Keys of Uttoxeter Road, on the outskirts of Stone, it was a busy Sunday too.
They hosted their first Open Farm Sunday event, inviting visitors of all ages to find out how a commercial goat herd is reared.
The business operates from a roundhouse, which offers plenty of ventilation and natural light to its residents and has sparked the curiosity of many a passing motorist.
More than 570 visitors took up the opportunity and had the chance to tour the farm, see the goats and sample goat burgers and sausages, courtesy of Stone Butchers and Deli.
Local vets Shires were also on hand to explain aspects of goat care and Hilderstone’s Oak Tree Farm Rural Project team supplied refreshments to the visitors.
Others who attended included South Staffordshire and District Beekeepers’ Association and dairy farmer and Guernsleigh Cheese producer Ernie Durose, who farms near Milwich.
Antony Key said: “With the weather being as it could have been, we didn’t know whether to expect 50 people or 500; we would have been happy if we had 300.
“It all went down really well and everybody had a good time. We felt we were giving a very open and truthful account of what we do.
“A neighbouring dairy farm is planning to host an Open Farm Sunday event next year, which gives people who visited this year the chance to see a different farm next year.”
