As a working farm, they run a market garden, mixed fruit and nut orchards, chickens, bees, some milking cows and raise pigs. They also have a delightful restaurant, open for weekly lunches and occasional cooking workshops.

You’ll be provided with clear directions on how to get there prior to the course.
We’ll provide you with morning and afternoon tea with a delicious farm lunch in the middle!
