On Sunday 15 July there will be a special opportunity to visit Eames Farm, an organic 900 acre beef farm set in Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors can enjoy farm walks, cookery demonstrations, a food market and lots of fun children’s activities.
Visiting the farm will highlight the challenges faced by farmers as they work within a protected landscape and need to make space for wildlife as well as their farm animals. In the courtyard, local chef Rosemary Moon will be cooking up some of the rarer cuts of beef into everyday dishes. A local food market will feature butchers, bakers and a greengrocers along with some local arts and crafts. Children will be kept busy making bird boxes, planting wildflower seeds and more. Refreshments are available or bring your own picnic.
Alison Fowler, Environment Manager said, ‘we look forward to working with Simon Sprackling, the farmer, to welcome people to one of my favourite parts of Chichester Harbour AONB. With so much planned it will be a great day out for all ages.’
Entry to the event is free with a small charge made for some of the activities. Places on the Farm Walks are limited and can be pre-booked for £1.50 per head
call 01243 513275. The Farm will be open from 10am – 3pm. For more details see www.conservancy.co.uk.
