Josh is our Farm Animal Manager and does a great job keeping our animals happy and healthy. He thoroughly enjoys keeping chickens and has been keeping his own for several years. During that time he has kept numerous breeds, often hatched from eggs he has placed under broody hens, but has also had some experience using an incubator and rearing his own chicks too. When not tending to his own chickens or those at Mantel Farm, he is looking after his bees. Having kept bees for a few years and attended a beekeeping course, he has gained experience and knowledge of these incredible insects. Josh can also be found working in the shop advising customers on beekeeping and poultry care.
