We're delighted that Nigel Hester, who has worked in conservation and wildlife management on Exmoor for over forty years, has very kindly agreed to join us for a couple of special farming wildlife tours here at West Ilkerton on Wednesday 7th September and Wednesday 21st September 2022.
Numbers will be limited to a maximum of eight guests per tour.
The price (£25 per person) includes VAT and a picnic tea.
See our farm and its wildlife from the comfort of our tractor-drawn trailer. Some easy walking and rummaging in undergrowth are optional.
Lots to discover and masses to talk about.
Bring a pair of binoculars, a mobile phone and a camera if you have them.
A variety of wildlife can usually be seen as we travel around the farm, from birds and butterflies to mammals like foxes and red deer.
During your tour we feed some of our farm animals. Because they're used to seeing the tractor and trailer we can get really close so you can view them from the safety of the trailer. Remember to bring your camera!
Our Exmoor ponies are very inquisitive, so when they hear the tractor they always come to see what's going on, and whether carrots are involved!
