Start Time: 10:00
On arrival at the farm around 10:00 you will be greeted and introduced to the family. We will then begin the rounds of the farm to feed and check on all of the animals.
You will experience feeding and herding sheep, Milking goats (when possible), collecting eggs and more. Together we will ensure all of the animals have water and check that they are healthy and happy.
You will be able to go into the enclosures and handle smaller animals including chicks, rabbits, lambs and piglets (depending on time of year).
Every day is unique on the farm so there is always something new to experience when doing the rounds with us.
Once finished with the animals you will be able to pick some fresh tomatoes and other items from the orto to make salad then change and refresh before joining the family for lunch including your selected orto items, BBQ cooked meat and cured cuts made from our rare breed animals.
During and after lunch, you will have the opportunity to relax and explore further and also to ask any questions you have about the farm.
