Please meet us at the Farm Shop
Interested in keeping a few free-range chickens but not sure about the pecking order? Experienced poultry farmer Christo Botha will share the practicalities of keeping chickens at home, be it for fresh eggs, chicken manure to boost your compost, snail control or as entertaining family pets.
We will spend time in and around the historic fowl house and chicken pen in the garden to discover what chickens need if they are to remain happy and healthy. Can’t tell the difference between African Boschvelders, Potch Koekoek, Leghorns and Black Australorps? Christo will help you select the best breed from what is locally available.
Lunch will be served in the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
