While you're here, why not also visit the farm's fabulous coffee shop; The Stove, where many of the fresh ingredients come straight from the kitchen garden. The Kitchen Bakery also provides plentiful tempting delights.

Knibbs, the award winning butcher, also has a fantastic shop at the farm. Get a trim with Claire at Bourn4Hair or try some stretches with Yoga At The Barn.

Make time to say hello to the friendly goats (Skippy, Topsy, Tim and Fennel), pigs (Alfie and Peppa), and the chickens and ducks in Puddleduck Paddock.

"Thanks so much for today, it was brilliant & everyone loved it." - EW

"Help! I’m holding you entirely responsible for this, but W is now MASSIVELY into bushcraft. He has got my old Swiss Army knife and some of the books you recommended and he really wants to MAKE THINGS!" - AA

"I wanted to thank you and Richard for *****’s party today. He and his friends had a fantastic time - thanks for all you did to make it such an enjoyable morning for everyone." - JA


"Thank you, thank you Mel. What a great day. I highly recommend the campfire cooking course. The food was amazing and I'm still full. Loved how practical and hands on it all was. Made fire, prepped and cooked food outdoors and enjoyed a fabulous hot chocolate." - LR


"Thank you thank you thank you ...  the words barely seem enough when compared with seeing such joy on his face.  ***** hasn't had an easy couple of years trying to settle into school here and he's had to deal with a bit of bullying along the way.  This party and your bushcraft club are the first time (other than when he's playing rugby!) that I've seen him really shine with joy.  He has loved being part of the club and is desperate to know if there's another level up he can do ...  He'll be there in a shot! He's just come back from Winter Camp with scouts and was most put out to realise he couldn't take his fire starter kit, kettle and bushcraft knife with him but he had a ball none the less and apparently regaled all the leaders with the skills he's learnt!" - SE

"Mel and Richard planned a fun-packed day of activities for my friend's 30th birthday; they tailored it perfectly for us. We absolutely loved the archery and cooking our own lunch over the fire pit in the bushcraft shelter was really exciting! Mel and Richard were fantastic and we had a truly super day!" - VH

"Best birthday party EVER! Thank you so much Mel and Richard for such an amazing afternoon. The girls had such a brilliant time!" - LC

"It was fantastic and I highly recommend these parties, my son loved every minute. Thank you Mel." - TB

"Wow what a fabulous morning I have had on an outdoor cooking course. We made fire then cooked bread, salmon, potato bake, scones, Welsh cakes, cooked apple and amazing hot chocolate. I highly recommend one of these cookery courses for adults who fancy doing something a bit more adventurous. Thank you Mel..." - HF

"We had a lovely archery taster session with Mel this morning in a beautiful old barn. We played many fun games as well as just trying to get a bullseye. I would recommend to anyone and everyone!" - AH

"Just got back from a fantastic archery experience for my fiancè. She loved it. Thanks Mel, Richard and Katrina" - WD

"We had a great time yesterday, enjoying an adults' archery session with Mel. The event was perfectly organised and we all had plenty of time to progress, with Mel's coaching and encouragement, from simply getting the arrow anywhere on the target to more challenging tasks and games. Good fun and excellent value." - FB

"Our son had his 7th medieval birthday party with Mel and her team. He had a brilliant time "loved being outside". Mel was excellent at keeping the kids engaged at all times, both boys and girls. Shall not only spread the word but book her up again!" - SD

"An excellent time had by all at *****'s archery party. Fantastically run by Mel, with a great atmosphere. Thanks." - JE
