Wellie boots or sturdy foot wear is recommended as;

1) Foot dipping is compulsory for all visitors to the smallholding

2) Animals are loose on the premises so there will be muck about!

3) If it has been raining the ground will be slippery.

Children are welcome but MUST be kept with you and not allowed to wander off. We have horses and goats as well as the chickens and most of our fencing is electrified. We have had children opening nestboxes and chicken house doors which may allow birds to escape.

Wheelchair access - our entrance is on a sloping gravel drive. If you are injured or disabled please mention this when phoning as it is possible to park at the top of the drive by PRIOR ARRANGEMENT ONLY due to vehicle disinfection procedures.

Pushchair and wheelchair wheels must be cleaned and sprayed BEFORE entering the gate.

A hose, brush and disinfectant spray will be supplied by prior arrangement.

Please bring suitable boxes to transport your hens.

Cat baskets / pet carriers are ideal, otherwise cardboard boxes with air holes are fine for shorter journeys on cool days.
