River Cottage – Smallholder
Join us down on the farm for a day of swotting up and mucking in, to learn how to start your own smallholding, River Cottage-style.
Fancy living the good life? Designed with rookie smallholders in mind, our one-day course is a brilliant introduction to the skills, equipment and knowledge required to raise classic livestock. Having been farming since 1982 with years of experience in organic farming methods under his belt, River Cottage farm manager Dan Powell makes the perfect guide.
Learn the basics in animal husbandry, put the theories into practice and get hands-on with the pigs and sheep and poultry here at Park Farm. As well as the chance to explore our idyllic surroundings in the heart of the Devon countryside, you’ll be served a local, seasonal lunch and plenty of that famous River Cottage hospitality. Bring your enthusiasm and get stuck in.
