Open Days

Our open days are designed to introduce local people to the farm and make an enjoyable time for all. We choose to do them on bank holiday Mondays so that can have a good day out in the country without having to go too far!

We open the gates at 10am and provide special activities for all the family. We recommend bringing a picnic (although sometimes we are able to to provide a lunch) and allowing yourself plenty of time to wander around, exploring and enjoying.

  • Monday 17 April – Easter Hunt and Picnic
  • Monday 29 May – Grow Your Own –
    • this open day will be with only minimal extra activities as we are short staffed.  There will be shop, plant sale and refreshments with a few simple playthings put out for you.
  • Monday 28 August – Harvest and Preserve
  • Sunday 15 October – Apple Juicing

Volunteering

Our volunteering days are Fridays and Saturdays.

We start at 1000 and run until 1700. You can join for all or part of the session.

We have a cuppa mid-morning, a “bring and share” lunch at 1230ish and another break in the afternoon.

We send everyone home and lock up at 1700.

Please contact us for more information.

Shop open

tomatoes and squashOur shop is open on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from 9am to 4.30pm.

We don’t have a huge stock during the spring, but it’s always worth a visit to come and look round the farm to see what is beginning to grow. You can also feed the chickens and look for fish in our ponds.

Summer 2016 was our first real season selling our produce. We sold loads of french beans, runner beans, lettuces and beetroot over the summer. All we have for now is eggs, spinach, and our range of jams and chutneys. This year we will produce much more fresh veg: onions, garlic, radish, beetroot, lettuce, mixed salad leaves, mange toute, tomato, carrots, chard, spinach, cucumber, french beans, kale, runner beans, squash, herbs, We hope to have some currants, apples and pears too.

We sell duck and chicken eggs. There may be goose eggs later in March – they only lay in the spring

Goose eggs with chicken eggs

Goose eggs are big!

The eggs are 100% organic – the ducks and chickens free range around our meadows and the feed we supplement them with is organic. These organic layers pellets are quite expensive and it means that our eggs are 35p for chickens (£2.10 for 6) and 45p for ducks (£2.70 for 6).
