  1. My niece and I attended the educational workshop and it was fantastic. We would both like to highly recommend this as a fun and educational way to spend a morning. We loved meeting the animals and learning about some of the crops. The pea pods were delicious. To top it off we bought some lovely fresh goods from the farm shop and some sweet treats 😉 Definitely try and get your hands on the crunchie slice homebakes – they were so good! Looking forward to coming back again for future workshops.

    1. My family attended the Halloween Harvest today and what a fantastic time we had. It was great fun and very engaging right from the get go. Can’t wait to come back for a visit.
