Drovers Rest Farm - Animal Encounters & Farm Visits

How the food is grown is one of our great passions. We don’t want any baddies in our food so we farm organically no artificial pesticides, fertilizers or hormone injections for our animals. The animals have the best life possible free ranging on the farm. Here we pride ourselves on Food that is grown the proper way. We offer visits to the farm to learn about how we farm organically producing tasty food that is grown ensuring the best for our well-being and health. Come and meet the animals and learn first hand how to take care of them and have some fun with them, feeding and stroking them. You will also learn how we farm in tune with nature while being environmentally aware. See composting first hand and our wormery is fascinating. Learn about food waste and what we can do about it. See how bees help pollinate our produce. Learn about regenerating our soil to help sequester carbon. The soil is important, we need to treat it well to enable more harvests for the next generations. Learn about permaculture methods we use to grow our veg. Help add bits to our ever growing bug hotel and enjoy areas of the farm that we are rewilding for nature, benefitting from each other. We also have an onsite restaurant that we operate field to fork and accommodation so you can enjoy the farm for longer. We have cottages and glamping. And host groups and Weddings too
