Visiting the Farm 2024

OPENING SATURDAY 8TH JUNE 2024 at 1030

 

NO ENTRANCE FEE

 

As we bath in this glorious sunshine the memory of our wettest winter for years is swiftly passing, and albeit our wild flower water meadow, orchard blossom and Jacob sheep are looking fantastic our Lavender is not fairing as well and along with many farmers in the region we have had a worrying spring.  Sam and I walked the fields again this morning and were heartened by the movement over the last week or so, though late, the first green shoots of recovery are appearing, moorhen chicks are on the pond and tadpoles simply innumerable. So, plenty to look forward to and an ever deepening sense of fortune to live in such a beautiful area.

 

This year we are continuing to replenish our Lavender fields and are just starting planting our next batch of 2500, Hidcote, Mellisa lilac, Imperial Gem and Grosso plants, with similar planned for the Autumn and Spring  2025; our fields should be full again by next summer  with an ever growing  flourish of butterflies and bees that we seem to have attracted to the area.

 

We shall be opening on the Saturday 8th June at 1030, and look forward to welcoming you to come and enjoy wandering around our fields, watching the wildlife, partaking in Sam’s famous cakes/refreshments and finding a unique gift amongst the craftwork on sale from our visiting local artists and artisans. Harvest is likely to start mid-July and for the following three weeks or so distillation of the Lavender will be ongoing -

 

We shall not be running a booking system this year for individuals/family groups nor shall we charge for entry to the fields, however, we trust you will understand that we are a small enterprise and so for groups/clubs we ask that you do contact us prior to ensure we can cater to your needs.

 

Thank you for your support and encouragement

 

Sam and Mark
