Guided Walks at Rectory Farm
If you have a passion for the countryside and are interested in conservation and food production, book in on one of our conducted farm walks!
Through the months of May and June we offer guided farm walks to interested clubs and organisations. The purpose of these walks is to encourage the general public onto farms and demonstrate how a modern farm works in partnership with the environment.
A warm welcome awaits you at the farm where you will be escorted on a walk which lasts around 2 - 3 hours. They are free of charge and can be tailored to your groups interests, whether that be conservation, history, photography, birds or farming in general.
The walk takes you to the brow of the hill at the back of the farm where spectacular views can be admired around the Welland Valley and over the Eyebrook Reservoir. Throughout the walk we encourage active conversation and interaction from your group for you to get the most from your visit. We cover various topics including archaeology, arable farming, conservation, sheep rearing & wild birds. The walk concludes with a well earned cup of tea and homemade scone in the farmyard.
We have spaces available in May & June 2017 for walks around the farm, or alternatively through the winter months we can give a talk and presentation on ‘80 years at Rectory Farm’ at your evening meetings. For further information please do not hesitate to contact us and we can discuss your requirements further. To avoid disappointment, early booking is recommended.
