Open Farm Sunday
Sunday 9th June
11am - 3pm
Wick Grange Farm is taking part in Open Farm Sunday again this year. Wick Care Farm staff and volunteers are working alongside Tom to host a range of activities and tours as well as producing a huge range of cakes, rolls and drinks.
Trailer rides start from 11am and will take about 30 mins and will continue until the last one about 2.30pm. The trailer stops a couple of times and Tom will discuss what is growing on the farm and what measures he has taken to help the conservation of wildlife.
In the barn, you will be able to meet some of our hand reared lambs, our chicks and young ducklings. Also in there you will be able to try some craft activities and meet the children's author Tracey Bryant.
In the other barn, bee keeper Keith will be there with a demonstration hive and other equipment - Can you spot the queen?
There will also be a chance to make a candle using a sheet of beeswax.
Wick Care Farm and their volunteers will be baking again, producing an array of wonderful tasty cakes as well as soup and filled rolls. However, if you wish to bring a picnic, you are most welcome to find a comfortable spot and enjoy the sunshine.
Outside you will have the chance to look around the farm and the area which is used by the Care Farm to grow produce and to help rear some animals - a flock of Jacob sheep, weaner pigs, geese, ducks and chickens. There will be a quiz to help answer.
Also you can try your hand at a number of other activities to do with planting, the soil and bug hunting.
