Open Farm Sunday 2023 (SOLD OUT)
The whole family is welcome at this FREE event. Come and find out about how we farm, what we’re doing for wildlife, soil health, and explore our machinery and enjoy various fun activities.
We will be running two sessions throughout the day: 10am - 1pm and 1pm-4pm. Session times are a rough indicator of timings, but if you would like to join a farm walk, then please arrive in time to join departures from the farmyard at either 11am or 2pm depending on which session you have booked.
The walk is about 3km, approx. 1.5hr, with regular stops and discussions about our crops, regenerative and organic farming practices, woodland and wildlife. It will take you to areas of the farm not usually open to the public, with fantastic views of Scolt Head Island and Brancaster Harbour. We have found this walk is most appropriate for ages 12+, but this is at your discretion depending on your child’s interest in farming and wildlife, and their capacity for a good walk.
Members of the Iceni Bird Monitoring Group, who regularly record on the farm, will be joining us on the walk to give an insight into our birdlife. Please note bird activity is likely to be greater in the morning session than the afternoon, and will always be dependent on weather conditions.
As well as the walk, there will be various activities in the farmyard, including:
- interactive display from Norfolk Rivers Trust including an invertebrate tank with water and invertebrates taken from our dykes on the marsh
- owl pellet dissection
- green woodworking demonstration
- machinery to explore
- display on regenerative farming practices
- Honey bee display with delicious honey on sale
And more to be confirmed
Places are limited, so book ahead.
Please come suitably dressed for the weather, with decent shoes/boots for walking as there will be some dirt tracks and uneven ground.
Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead at all times.
The guided farm walk is on level ground with a gentle uphill climb. Please be aware that we will be walking on fields and crossing field boundaries; this walk may not be suitable for wheelchair users. Please email us with any queries.
