Land girls experience
Tue, 2 May 2017, 11:00 – Thu, 4 May 2017, 15:00 BST
During both world wars, Land girls were crucial to the running of the war effort. Strong, confident women who worked the land to keep our ancestors fed and the country running. Their camaraderie, ‘can-do’ attitude and abundant energy kept life on track.
This summer @ Home Farm Glamping, we’ve re-created the opportunity to play ‘land girl’. To learn new skills. To grow as women. To walk away confident that you can turn your hand to anything. Because those land girls didn't start out equipped. They were mostly city folk arriving alone and unskilled. Nervous and incompetent. But they rolled up their sleeves and jumped in. Together. Celebrating their failings and small wins in equal measure. Revelling in the fresh air, the laughter and the knowledge that they could achieve anything.
And now you can too! We've crafted the perfect combination of physical hard graft and 'you' time. Vintage tractor tyres to change, a market garden to build and seed as well as creative activities such as pottery and journaling to inspire your passions. We'll make sure you're well fuelled throughout your stay. Home cooked fare, nutritious and delicious. Eaten al fresco, come rain or shine. We’ve got the food, drinks [apart from booze], activities, entertainment and real beds all covered from £250 per person.
Campfire chats. Star gazing. A sense of achievement. Memories that will live with you forever.
Time for you.
We want you to leave Home Farm as equally revitalised and alive, as reconnected and reset; mentally and physically. Feeling like the girl who can.
A land girl in the truest sense.
