Training Courses and Events

We will always encourage others to be as self sufficient and sustainable as possible, and this includes keeping livestock where possible. Our Chicken Keeping courses, among others, are here to help. However when keeping livestock you become responsible for their welfare and it is essential that you are confident to give them the care and attention they deserve.  We do not consider ourselves to be experts in all animal care but we are happy to talk to you and share our experiences, giving advice where possible.  

Please see below for details of training held by ourselves and other recommended training providers. 

We also attend several shows and fayres throughout the year,  our diary will be updated throughout the year with our events for 2014.
