Are you interested in spending the day on a smallholding to experience what its like? Have you been thinking about keeping sheep, chickens, or ponies or perhaps producing your own vegetables, but don’t know where to start? We are able to help! We offer smallholding experience days and courses on our our 3-acre smallholding.
Our experience days are all about giving you the chance to get hands on with our animals and market garden. We offer a friendly and relaxed environment where you will have the opportunity to take part in the daily rhythm of Appleby Cottage. You can have a go at feeding and watering the animals, mucking out, collecting eggs, grooming the ponies and looking after the vegetables and flowers in the market garden. As will all rural activity the exact nature of your day will be determined by the seasons, but there is always plenty to do and learn about.
