Heritage Open Barn Afternoon

Orchard Barn is open as part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme.

In a time-honoured way, we harvest our own subsoil and make best use of small dimension trees from local woods. What could be more natural and sustainable than that? Well if you add into the equation that we do the majority of the processing using human energy instead of fossil fuel, then we're heading for negative carbon! Yes, it takes longer but the environmental/fiscal costs are so much lower, and the community/fitness/heritage benefits are greater.
