From late August to mid October we rear calves so if you visit during this time you have the opportunity to pitch in and help. Other animals on the farm include pet sheep/lambs, alpaca, working dogs, pigs, chickens, ducks, 2 house cats and Greta the naughty goat.

Accommodation is within our family home - we have 2 bedrooms available, with guest share bathroom/toilet. A delicious continental breakfast and afternoon farm tour are included in your stay.
