FREE – Open Farm at Pensthorpe


Pensthorpe nature reserve, is giving visitors an insight into its regenerative farming programme, with an Open Farm event on Sunday 25th June.

Free to attend and open from 11am – 4pm, visitors can learn more about the behind-the-scenes farm work that not only benefits the reserve, but also the surrounding wildlife, thanks to Pensthorpe’s efforts to restore and rewild areas impacted by more traditional farming techniques.

At midday and 2pm, guests can watch sheep shows which includes shearing sessions and beekeeping demonstrations take place throughout the day, where guests can ask questions about the hives across the reserves.

Nick Acheson, the Pensthorpe Conservation Trust’s recently appointed trustee and passionate naturalist and conservationist, is hosting a talk at 3pm outlining the Trust’s important initiatives, including the Curlew Recovery Project, and plans for future years.

Visitors are encouraged to make the most of their day out, as those attending the Open Farm enjoy discounted entry to the Pensthorpe reserve, saving £5 on adults and £4 on children’s tickets.

There is no cost to attend the Open Farm event at Pensthorpe, but please ensure you secure your place via the website:
