What we will do:
The aim of the tour is to combine an insight into homestead farming with hands-on animal fun and that to show that semi self-sufficient farming is still possible in this day and age.
Cows, pigs, chickens, lambs, ducklings, geese, rabbits and more, all want to meet you. What would be nicer than bottle-feeding a lamb, holding a baby chick or giving the calf a cuddle? Here you get to do it all!
Who ever is interested can find out about the different breeds of animals and their characteristics, animal husbandry and their economic uses.
Participants can see the demonstration bee-hive up close, learn the different parts of a beehive, and get an illustrated lecture about the anatomy and the life cycle of the honeybee.
The tour also leads trough the poly tunnel and fruit garden. You can learn about the principles of growing food inside and outside, the start and maintenance of a fruit garden and orchard and also about ways to be able to live off the home-grown food supply all year round.
This enjoyable age-old skill is easy to learn and really takes us back to nature. Children and adults have fun with our rubber cow.
The Visitors will learn the basic principals of home dairy. Basic dairy tools will be shown and explained, such as a simple cheese press, the butter barrel, and the Yoghurt warmer. The basic principals of making cheese, fresh cheese and yoghurt will also be explained.
See the tame owl fly silently up close. Sometimes she can even land on ta visitor's arm.
The tour concludes with tea, coffee and Scones inside the Conservatory
