 Come and be a Farmer for a Day

sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

 We would like to invite you to experience life on a farm and learn about how farming has been done through the ages.

 We are running sessions to teach people about farming and market gardening in a fun and hands on way. You will get stuck in helping to look after the animals and gardens and learn about the traditional tools and techniques farmers used to use and how we still use some today.  

The Farmer for a day course will pay particular attention to chicken farming and why and how we have kept chickens through the ages. It is ideal for anyone who is interested in keeping chickens to learn some practical traditional chicken keeping skills or anyone who just wants to come and have fun on the farm and meet the animals.

The Gardener for a day will teach you about traditional fruit and vegetable gardening methods. It is a great way to learn a little about how to grow your own food the natural way showing you how ponds and wildlife can help keep pests at bay. We will also teach you about what has been grown in this area in the past including growing for the markets of London and the rise of allotments.  

There will also be traditional farm crafts available for you to see and have a go at. We will have people showing Wool spinning, straw craft, felting and knotting.  

The sessions are aimed at anyone from the age of eight upwards. They are fun activity days that will also teach a bit about farming and gardening. The next session is on Tuesday 25th August and is Free to attend. Please call or email the farm to register as places are limited. All we will ask you to bring is yourselves and a packed lunch. Please do dress for the weather as most activities are outside.
