Open Farm Sunday 2019

7 June, 2019, No comments

Hello everybody!The weather forecast for Open Farm Sunday this weekend - 9th June - is pretty good, fingers crossed for dry weather. Farming, food and fun is our mission, so do come along! At just £1/head it's always a great day with lots to see and every £1 will be going straight to St Cuthbert's Hospice in Durham. If you have ever wondered about the story of beef or lamb from field to fork, or how we farm in the North East of England, then this event is for you. We'll have interesting walks and activities for all ages - young and old. You'll get the chance to visit parts of the farm that are normally inaccessible, to get up close to our animals and to ask questions about production methods, organic farming and how machinery works...and to ask the dog's name! Open Farm Sunday is a national event that we first took part in on a rainswept Sunday in 2007...we'll have extra car parking and a BBQ outside the coffee shop - please bring your loose change for the charity donation & BBQ if possible, it'll speed things up tremendously.

3 reasons to visit Broom House Farm

18 May, 2019, No comments

Hello everybody,Whether it's the Farm Shop, the Coffee Shop or the Forest Adventure that brings you here, make the most of your days off, weekends and half term with a visit to Broom House Farm. So many people say that as they drive up the hill they feel a sense of well-being and it's easy to see why, with the fields full of lambs and calves, the hedgerows frothy with hawthorn flowers and the frequent sighting of a deer, a hare, a curlew or at the very least a swallow. Trees are now leafy, grass grows and the last ewe has had her babies. As is traditional at the end of lambing time, the vegetable garden is being planted up - after a good soaking from the rain showers last week. We've been using up all the old packets of seed, with very mixed results. Out on the farm the oats have germinated well although one field that is meant to be oats and peas seems to only have oats...pigeons, slugs or non germinating seeds? There's a long list of jobs waiting to be done, from rebuilding stone walls to constructing new activities in the Forest Adventure. The Coffee Shop team are busy planning some extra bear related activities for half term .
