Open Farm Sunday 11th June 10am-2pm

Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1000 farmers across the UK have opened their gates and welcomed people onto their farm for one Sunday each year.
It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old, to discover at first hand what it means to be a farmer and the fabulous work they do producing our food and managing the countryside.
At Betty’s we will have farm walks, egg collecting opportunities, pony rides, bouncy castle, tasters and ice cream in the shop, BBQ, competitions and the play area and café will be open. Entry to site is free and there is ample parking
Tractor Ted is Back!! 21st August 11am-3pm

Tractor Ted Day – this is the BIG ONE!! We had over 1000 people on site last year. Tractor Ted will be here from 11am - 3pm and it will be all the fun of the farm, all day: BBQ, tombola, ice cream, animals, activities, stalls, face painting and competitions to name but a few of the fab things that are planned. Entry is free and there is ample car parking


The café, butchery and shop will be open during all these events.
