British White cattle grazing update

The cattle are now grazing Great Horsham Hill and Jenny Bare Legs fields for a stay of about two weeks here (and in Chambers Field adjoining). Then they are likely off to Chennells Brook Castle, Lemmington Way around the beginning of September. Visitors are as usual asked to keep in mind all animal welfare issues and have dogs under control please in the public fields being used by the cattle. Thank you!

There are also free workshops on sustainability and wellbeing related topics. For more details or to book remaining places go to Eventbrite.

Christmas greetings

Wishing all of you who visit, appreciate and champion Chesworth Farm, a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year

Our Christmas wreath-makers were as creative as ever at our seasonal workshop. Restored with hot refreshments and even a little winter sun, they braved the challenge of a well-ventilated but chilly Volunteer Centre to craft natural wreaths from local greenery. (Picture: Dave Verrall)
