Our second farm, opened in 2016, is found on the English – Welsh border in beautiful Herefordshire. Situated in the Golden Valley, within easy reach of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, Jamie’s Farmers here benefit from wonderful walks in the wilds of the countryside.
The enclosed farmyard has animals giving birth right next to the farmhouse where the children sleep. And though locals look at us as if we’re mad, we lambed our first sheep in deepest December – just to allow as many children as possible to benefit from this transformational experience. The Hereford team has built strong links with local farmers and organisations to offer visiting young people a rich and varied programme, whether on or off the farm. No fewer than two orchards, and our bountiful kitchen garden, provide fruit and vegetables throughout the year.
