We hold a monthly croft tour where you will get an overview of life at Lynbreck and how we farm with nature for healthy land and living. We’ll take you for a wander and tell you all about how we built our business from scratch, starting with no money and no infrastructure. We’ll be chatting about the following topics as we go around
Grazing for nature with native breeds of cattle and pigs
Creating new and working with existing woodlands
Using hens in conservation grazing
Telling and selling the Lynbreck story to the world
Self-sufficiency and wilder living
Farm diversification including on site food processing
Financial sustainability using Holistic Management
Tours start at 1pm, are approximately 3hrs long and start with a cuppa and cake. Terrain is varied so sturdy footwear and a moderate level of fitness is recommended.
We’re really passionate about sharing what we do with the upcoming generation and we want to do as much as we can to educate our little folk about where food comes from and how important our environment is. We’d be delighted to welcome families or adults with kids on our tours. Just for info however, we do keep a healthy distance from our animals as we are conscious of keeping it low stress for them.
Whilst we love pooches ourselves, we have to ask that you leave yours at home. We very much understand that people are keen to bring their 4 legged friend along. However our animals don’t understand what’s a threat and what isn’t so it could get them a bit stressed. And our hens are free roaming and have proved too tempting for some visiting pooches in the past.
£15 (incl. VAT) per person – please get in touch via email to book and avoid disappointment.
