Farm Club is a great environment where we spend quality time with our friends and family. It is a fantastic way to learn new skills, get fresh air and exercise and produce our own great tasting food with a real sense of achievement. There are so many benefits in becoming a little more self sufficient and here it’s completely hassle free. We have been given so much advice from ‘roots to recipes’. Everything is provided and well managed so we get to enjoy the time we spend here. Children learn the importance and responsibility of looking after animals and where their food comes from. There are regular events that are both fun and educational. There is a range of people here of all ages and we have made new friends and feel like part of a small community, we share time with like minded people who enjoy the ’back to basics’ lifestyle.
