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 .
