Avian Flu Hazard Protection

As of 5th May 2022 we have lifted additional bio-security measures for visitors and staff with regards to Avian Flu. This situation can change quickly although it usually only applies to the winter season. When in place, we cannot allow dogs, including assistance dogs, onto the farm area. No exceptions. All footwear and other items such as wheels and mobility aids that touch the ground need to be disinfected. At times, including at short notice, we may need to restrict access altogether, please get in touch for up to date information.
