Group Visits & Private Parties

We can cater for your local group whether it is a U3A, WI, Rotary, Natural History, Organic Gardeners or international visitors. Why not choose something different and arrange a visit to England’s first community-owned farm?

We offer guided walks by Charlotte Hollins around Fordhall. A group tour will generally take about 1.5 hours and provide you with the inspiring behind the scenes story of how this historic farm was saved from development by thousands of people across the world. The walk also covers the unique Foggage farming system, organics, volunteering and more.

Walks can be offered free of charge, with only a charge for refreshments and lunches. We can accommodate groups Tuesday-Sunday. Guided tours are available Tuesday-Friday, for day or evening bookings.

Catering may consist of anything from a cup of tea and cake to a full Ploughman’s buffet, afternoon tea or Sunday Lunches in our eco-building. You are also more than welcome to bring your own picnic and make an afternoon of it in the picnic area.
