There is a variety of roses, salvias, peonies and wild flowers to enjoy. The kitchen garden is filled with a broad selection of vegetables and flowers.

Families are welcome and refreshments are available.

We are a small, family business based in Catsfield, promoting a sustainable way of life, through the pleasures of keeping small scale, productive livestock in gardens.  We offer training courses and guide our customers through the set up and keeping of such animals.  These garden interests link closely with gardens and horticulture and so I am keen to let you know about a promotion we are currently running that I hope will be of interest to your group.

 We would love to hear from you,
