Managed by Linking Environment And Farming OFS is one of the farming industry’s biggest success stories and something the estate is passionate about supporting. It is a great opportunity to come and say hello to the local producers whose supply the estate farm shop or get a tractor and trailer ride to meet some of the estate’s organic dairy cows and get an insight in to how we farm.
This summer (2023) we will be upgrading the dairy parlour and therefore sadly have decided not to hold OFS. We will keep you updated on our plans for 2024.
