Bake your own bread and bring it home with you afternoon course coming up on the 12th of May. There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked bread wafting out of your OWN oven – one of life’s simple pleasures and it’s sooo easy. On this half day course, a combination of demonstration and hands-on session, you’ll learn how to make several different bread recipes from traditional white and brown soda and multi seed to a really simple brown and white yeast bread technique and super quick scones. After a short demonstration, it’s into the kitchen for a hands-on session to bake your chosen loaves to bring home to share proudly with your family and friends.

The chickens are finally free and running around our 100 acre organic farm and gardens. We have just had the green light to finally let the chickens out having been cooped up since December under instruction from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) because of the risk of Avian influenza/bird flu. This means the chickens will now get their full nourishment again from the ground and freedom to run around. #freerangechickens
Tim Allen showing the #12weekstudents the precious humus soil that is now ready to use after composting the garden, farm and kitchen waste over 12 months. Each week we take the students on a farm walk to show what is happening in the gardens and something new is always happening.
