About this event

At the kind invitation of local farmer, Robert Thornhill, this will be a guided tour around his dairy farm business. We will hear about modern dairy farming and how Robert balances the need to run an efficient business with environmental and other concerns. A short walk across the farm will be involved and there will be lots of opportunities to ask questions about Robert's work.

This is a visit to a working farm and attendees must follow the advice of the farmer at all times. In particular, please do not wander off without informing anyone. Children under 16 years old are welcome, but only if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please wear suitable footwear, such as clean wellington boots, which can be dipped in disinfectant at the farm before beginning the visit. Please ensure all clothing and footwear has been cleaned since any previous visits involving livestock. These are just the usual agricultural precautions.

Car parking is available in the farm yard, but please try to car share where possible.
