6.00pm – 9.00pm

Ragley Hall, Arrow, Alcester, B49 5NJ

 

Our annual summer farm walk and barbeque will this year be held at Ragley Hall near Alcester.  The event refreshments are being sponsored once again by Syngenta.

This year our event will also celebrate Warwickshire Rural Hub’s 21st anniversary with prosecco and cake.

The tour of the estate will take place via covered trailer and will be led by Andrew Keyte.   Ragley Home Farms is a 3,500 acre arable and sheep LEAF-Marque certified farm. At the centre of the farm’s ethos is a balanced approach to conservation and environmental protection. Suffolk-cross mule ewes graze the Ragley parkland throughout the year, before being brought indoors during the winter months and lambing season.  The estate has established six metre margins around all arable fields to help provide suitable habitats to an assortment of animals and insects.  The farm is also a member of our South Warwickshire Sustainable Farming Group.

After the tour we will enjoy buffalo burgers (vegetarian options will be available) plus drinks in the parkland marquee with fantastic views over the lake.

Numbers are limited so please book your free place early with Jane on info@ruralhub.org.uk
