Agroforestry Open Weekend 2024

We are proud to be taking part in the national Agroforestry Open Weekend for the first time this year.

Oakbrook Farm Agroforestry Tour

Sunday 19th May, 3pm – 4:30pm

Find out why we’re planting fruit trees, hedges, shelterbelts, coppices and more on the farm. The tour will focus on Oakbrook Orchard, but also take in other new plantings across the farm, including trees planted in the last two years for woodchip, forage, basketry and shelter. Learn about the benefits of trees to the cattle, the vegetables, the soil and wildlife. Hear about some of the challenges we’ve encountered and see some of the solutions we’re working on.

Everyone welcome. You’ll need to be able to manage farm tracks, grassy fields and some steep slopes. Kids are welcome to play in our Haven Field, with adult supervision.

Please book a free place via our eventbrite page here.

Our friends and neighbours at Good Small Farms, literally just over the road, are also taking part in the event and are holding an open day on the same Sunday with food, kids’ activities, and a farm tour. Make a day of it!
