Beehives at Bosavern

We are delighted to offer a one day introduction to bee-keeping course with Matt Pitt on Saturday 20th June (or Sunday 21st if the weather is poor) here at the farm.

This will consist of a half day of theory, followed by a half day of practice, looking through our very own hives at the farm.

Spaces are limited to 6 people, so please email kate@bcents.org if you would like to attend.

This course is free of charge, made possible through grants from A4A and the local council community chest funding, and is a fantastic opportunity to find out a bit more about these very important little creatures!

 

Come celebrate our 5th Birthday this Sunday 7th May

We are pleased to announce that this Sunday 7th June we will be hosting our own special take on the Big Lunch and Open Farm Sunday –  it will be called ‘Bosavern Community Farm Open Farm Big Sunday Lunch, with Birthday Cake!’ catchy eh!? (with birthday cake as its also the farm’s 5th birthday!)

Picnic from midday

Our Big Lunch Picnic will be from 12pm, please bring something yummy to share! There will be the opportunity to purchase a slice or two of homemade cake (all donations to the farm).

Farm shop

Our lovely farm shop stocked with our own fresh produce along with delicious goodies from other local producers will be open 11am -6pm.

Farm tour

Hugh, one of our growers, will be leading a farm tour at 3pm to see how we are growing with the seasons. We will visit the polytunnels, the market garden and you can also meet our lovely hens!

Lend a hand on the land

We are also encouraging people to give an hour or so of their time on the day to give our brilliant team of WWOOFers (international volunteers) a hand working in the market garden – so wear clothes to get dirty 🙂

We are family friendly, so bring the kids for a run around!

Hope to see you there!
Nikki and Team
