This promises to be a GREAT FAMILY DAY OUT!! Visit a local farm producing beef and lamb from heritage breeds grazed on nearby nature reserves and pastures.
Families will be able to meet a variety of traditional farm animals in the 'Old Fold Yard' of this working farm, guess the weight of Billy the Bullock and stroke Lammy the Lamb, see Norfolk Turkeys, chickens and ducks. Sit on vintage tractors and machinery that has helped produce food over the years. There will be samples of all the foods we produce, Gressingham Duck, Birds Eye Peas, Feed Wheat, Barley, Oats and Oilseed Rape. Sample a delicious grass-fed hot pulled beef or lamb roll, cakes and buns.
There will be a WOOL SPINNING DEMO, BOER GOATS to see,HORSE & CART RIDES, and WILDLIFE stands.
At Beswick Hall Farms we produce our meat using regenerative farming techniques, in an environmentally friendly and ethical manner. Our striking Belted Galloway cattle and Oxford Down sheep graze happily along the River Hull Valley on land that is typically too wet and unsuitable for growing any other type of food. Grazing cattle on this type of land, encourages new plant growth, takes carbon from the air and sequesters it into the ground in the form of root growth. Manure from the animals enriches the soil to help plants grow so the ground is constantly being regenerated. The cattle’s feet create small divots (indents) in the wet ground where calorie-rich invertebrates and insects like to make their home, this creates a whole new eco-system and a food source for migratory and passing birds.
No booking required
It is very much a working farm, so depending on the weather you might need boots.
This event will run in line with local & national government guidelines at the time of the festival.
To get to Low Farm from Beverley, take the A164 towards Driffield, go past the left turning for Beswick (pronounced Bez - ick) village and you will see a wooden bus shelter to your left. Turn right here opposite the bus shelter and keep going for about 1 mile, the postcode takes you as far as the railway lines but keep going over the lines, past a wood on your left, until you reach the next farm on the left, which is Low Farm. The map automatically generated on this site has placed the farm on the right of the road, in error. Park across the road from the farm if possible, and please do not obstruct the single carriage road.
