A milking demonstration takes place at 1 pm, and events also include a farm quiz, scavenger hunt and wellie throwing.
Guests are also invited to try some samples of dairy products that are produced by the farm’s milk.
Arla will be offering free food samples throughout the open farm day.
A spokesman said: “We are serving freshly cooked burgers on the barbecue.
