Notes

Set in 12 acres of land on the Suffolk/Norfolk border we produce a range of artisan goat's milk products from our small herd of 20 Golden Guernsey goats.  Activities include helping to make cheese in the dairy as well as learning how to make goat's milk soap. Taking care of the animals and learning about animal husbandry as well as bottle feeding the goat kids in the Spring time.   

There is also a herb nursery where we grow culinary and medicinal herbs as well as seasonal vegetables and an orchard where you will find our chickens.  Activities include egg collecting, propagating seeds, taking cuttings, planting hanging baskets, growing vegetables and fruit as well as learning about nutrition and healthy eating.

There are always plenty of jobs to do maintaining fencing, building field shelters, bird boxes and chicken houses.
