Whether you've always wanted to keep your own goats or just want a chance to get up close to ours, including our rare breed Bagots, this session is a great practical introduction. A picnic lunch from our Estate Farm Shop will be provided on the day. 

We are also running specialist sessions on keeping chickens (14 September), running a smallholding (21 September) and keeping pigs (12 October).

Each of our keeper days will cover:

  • What you need to get started
  • Animal breeds to suit your needs
  • Feeding and housing
  • Basic health care
  • Breeding
  • Costs involved in keeping
  • Regulations and documentation required
