Tyfu Cymru is delighted to be hosting a study visit to Keynon Hall, Warrington. A fantastic opportunity to visit Kenyon Hall farm, a family farm that has been passed on through the generations since before 1500. Like many farms in the UK, Kenyon Hall was a ‘Mixed Farm’ growing wheat, barley, grass, and potatoes and looking after milking cows, beef cattle, pigs and Hens. These days the farm is heavily involved in farm tourism, with a farm shop and café. In 1978 they planted the first 2 acres of strawberries from which the PYO and farm shop has grown. The farm now exceeds 500 acres. They have added to the range of crops year on year with gooseberries, currants, raspberries, asparagus, and growing over 200 varieties of herbs which started the plant sales area. They now have soft fruit in hydroponics including Spanish tunnels and outdoor tabletops. In recent years they have also added pumpkins, sunflowers, and a maize maze from which large numbers of cobs are sold. The farm has a lot of expertise on booking systems and social media and education for children.
This study visit is funded by Tyfu Cymru, and Lunch will be provided, but please provide your own transport.
Covid safety measures will be in place. Full details will be forwarded to attendees following registration.
