Farm Safaris for livestock, landscapes and wildlife at Eastbrook Farm

 

Farm Safaris for livestock, landscapes and wildlife at Eastbrook Farm

Every year probably in excess of 1000 people enjoy this remarkably diverse farm and all it offers. Some walk, some take a quick trip to the pigs, some lie down in fields and, quite rightly, do absolutely nothing for an hour or so. We should all do it more often.

We’re now combining  everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue—the photography hides, the woodlands that Helen has planted. The Roman villa, hidden below the skyline. And more as you come across it. Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover; open to everyone, and priced at £60 for up to four people and £90 for 5-8 peeps, about 2 hours. Great for families, groups of friends, business groups. Learn as much or as little as you wish. Walk back if you want the exercise. Add lunch or supper (or breakfast) at the pub. Check our website Eastbrook Experiences for dates, and other booking details.

Mushroom Explosion

Although the weather has felt pretty miserable over the last few weeks it’s been absolutely perfect for mushrooms – there’s been an explosion in the local area and James, our photographer from ProHides, has been out in the rain capturing images.  We don’t want you to miss out though so if you’ve got a camera, big or small, why not join him on Sunday 3rd of November for a photowalk to see some of these wonders for yourself.

Organic Pigs = High Welfare

BANNED! These common practices are all banned under Soil Association Organic standards:

- Nose ringing - used to prevent pigs natural rooting behaviour

- Tail docking - pigs in confined spaces often bite each other’s tails, so non-organic producers dock tails to prevent this

- Farrowing crates - small metal cage only inches wider than the female pig, used around the time she gives birth to restrict her movement and prevent her from following maternal instincts.

- Routine use of antibiotics.
