Open Farm Sunday
April 5, 2017
This year each of our three farms will be taking part in LEAF’s Open Farm Sunday on 11th June! You can come and see our farms in action at various times throughout the day.
Nethercott House, our Devon farm, will be open between 1:30pm and 5:30pm, and you can see sheep shearing, tractors, our livestock including sheep, rare-breed pigs, horses and poultry. We will also have a farrier display and a retail stall. You can take part in hosted farm tours, have a tractor and trailer ride and enjoy a cream tea.
Wick Court, our Gloucestershire farm, will be open between 10am and 1pm, where our resident London school will be busy with their farming duties and ready to give tours and information about the farm and our local and rare breed animals. The kitchen will be serving home-reared, home-grown, home-made refreshments. There will also be an opportunity to explore the orchard and kitchen gardens.
Lower Treginnis, our Pembrokeshire farm, will be also be open between 11am and 4pm, and you can get involved in activities such as bottle feeding goat kids, walking donkeys, feeding pigs and bottle feeding molly lambs. We are also organising a treasure hunt to our neighbouring potato farm. We will be providing food and drink, and our farm shop will also be open for you to purchase some of our farm produce and plants. In this week we will have children from London staying with us, and they will be your tour guides for the day!
While entry is free, a donation will be requested for our work with inner city children and farm produce will be on sale.
