Down on The Farm

How Does Your Garden Grow?

You too can Cook!
We can tailor a programme to your needs. It could include – a tour of the Working farm to see the live animals, an introduction to vegetables and plants grown and sold on the Farm and used in the restaurant. Have a go at sausage making and see the different raw meats and products on sale in the butchery. Why not include a talk from one of our chefs about catering as a career. Please discuss this when making your booking.
Discover the mystery of fire. Learn about the science behind fire and then put what you have learnt into practice by lighting your own small fire. Why not enjoy a hot lunch and have sausages cooked on an open fire to add to the experience.
