Opening times

8 Nov 2014
10.00 am - 3.00 pm

There will be a guided tour at 10: 00 am but visitors are also welcome at other times.

Please drive carefully up the track. It is rough and there will probably be sheep in the field. Look out for other cars coming in the opposite direction. A passing place is available on the corner half way along.
Wear stout shoes as the ground is rough in the farm yard. Children must stay close to parents. No smoking anywhere on the farm.

This event has now finished.

Other finished

We are an organic livestock farm up the dale at Glaisdale. We have a bunk barn which was renovated a couple of years ago and was very thoroughly insulated at the time. An attic conversion was also well insulated. We recently installed a log boiler, which is situated in an outbuilding and runs central heating and hot water for the farm, cottage and bunk barn. We have just completed putting in solar photo voltaic panels which will be a very useful addition as we use a lot of electricity on the farm.
