Just a reminder that we're taking a 'breather' and the farm is now closed until after Christmas. We re open at 12.30 pm on Tuesday 27th December. There are lots of maintenance jobs to do during this time ...... Weather permitting! so we won't be bored and the kites will still be fed daily, so no need to worry about that.

If we get some snow during our closed period we will re-open the farm so that the photographers amongst you can take advantage of the photographic opportunity. If this happens We'll post on facebook and the website, so please keep an eye out for this.

We'd like to say A big thank you to everyone who has visited us and thank you also for the kind comments we have received.

We've had a good year and we would particularly like to thank our dedicated staff team, Alan, Belinda, Colin & Garth, without whom we would not be able to run the farm.

Finally we wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas, and look forward to welcoming you back after the festivities.

Chris & family

A reporter came to the farm last week and took photographs and film. These went to the online papers and to print the next day. We are now feeding anything upwards of 500 red kites this autumn.
We have been open 7 days a week for tens of years, but things are now changing. From 1st November we will be open from Tuesday through to Sunday and closed on Mondays, but will still open 7 days a week for Bank holidays and School holidays.
