Would you like to know when the chestnuts start to fall? It’s an exciting time for those who know chestnuts, love to roast fresh ones and enjoy them with a glass of red wine and family.
We also offer a peeling service, so you can pick your chestnuts and have them peeled (only takes 5 mins) ready to use straight away or store in the freezer for when you want to use them, perhaps at Christmas time.  Enjoy a slice of chestnut cake and coffee or a light lunch in the farm shed.

Everyday - Hand feed European Red Deer, Goats, Chickens and Emus
