A huge crowd is expected at a farm walk taking place in Shropshire on May 29 .

The RABDF NMR Gold Cup farm walk, hosted annually by the award's current holder, attracts the largest crowd of any farm walk in the UK.

The Higgins family will open their gates on Thursday, May 29 at Wilderley Hall Farm at Pulverbatch near Shrewsbury.

The event is free and lunch is included but registration is essential for directions and catering purposes.

"This herd is well bred, well cared for and as a result it is performing to a very high level."
