Lyburn Farm Tours 2019
The dates for 2019 evening farm tours will be posted here at Christmas time.
We do get a number of requests for May and June, but the weather is too unpredictable and there is not a lot to see in the fields. We are not able to offer tours inside the cheese plant, however we do, on occasions auction a cheese making experience for charity, but there are none at the moment.
All days are 6.30pm for 6.45 start.
To book, call 01794 399982 weekdays.
The tours are all part of the Hampshire Food Festival
The itinerary is a tractor and trailer ride around the farm which takes approximately 1 1/2 hours and on the way we look at the issues of organic vegetables, visit the reservoir, the pumpkin fields, the cows, return to the farm to hear a bit about the cheese, and then sit down to a cheese supper, all for the price of £10, children half price. This can be a little bumpy so for those of you who think it might be a bit much, you are quite welcome to come, just for the supper. You will need to wear jeans and jackets, and you are entirely responsible for the weather, we never cancel due to rain, you can get wet, and on occasions very wet, you have been warned!
