hedgerow trainingWe offer free guided tours and short walks around the farm, as well as the opportunity for groups to pursue special interests. Our farming system and the local heritage and landscape provide a fantastic learning resource, and for many visitors it is the first time they have come to a farm. Julia Hawley, a trained guide and speaker will tailor your groups visit to give you a unique experience.

As well as many school visits, we welcome adult groups.

Past visitors have included informal study groups (e.g. WEA, U3A) looking at butterflies, dragonflies and birds. Organisations such as Citizens Advice Bureau and Leicestershire Rural Partnership have benefited from agricultural awareness tours and talks, providing insight into the issues facing farmers today.

Julia HawleyFrom 2010 we are working with LEAF on 'Let Nature Feed Your Senses', a project which encourages disables and disadvantaged groups to increase their contact with the natural world. We also organise some general interest walks for the wider public, providing an opportunity for local people to visit a farm to find out about food and farming as well as the conservation work we are doing. Familes are welcome on our nature activity days.

Forthcoming farm walks

Julia is also available as a speaker on farming and conservation topics for social and special interest groups – using her portfolio of photos of life and wildlife on the farm, she can take you on a 'virtual farm walk' so that you can experience the joys of the Leicestershire countryside. These talks are usually available free, although mileage may be charged.
