Our workshops cover a variety of different activities within our farm environment. Some very "farmy", others not so much!

We're a local charity that's supported by generous donations from visitors and friends. We're run by dedicated staff and volunteers for the benefit of the community.

Whatever you need, we have a highly motivated team that has lots of experience in running educational workshops for adults, and whether you want a half-day or full-day, we can tailor your needs. As a charity, it's really important we're accessible and affordable to all.



We listen to you
