As summer begins on our farm we go up a gear and start the month by opening our farm park to the public with the nationwide Open Farm Sunday event. This is a national event where farmers across the country open up our farms to educate people on how a real working farm functions, where our food comes from and how we produce from field to fork. Sunday 12th June 11am – 3pm.
With milking demonstrations, farm talks, animal petting, food & craft stalls and a hog roast we cannot wait to open our gates to our lovely visitors. We only ask for a small parking fee of which all proceeds will go to our chosen charities, Herts Young Farmers and Herts Air Ambulance to whom we are deeply grateful for all their hard work. Pawsome paddles, Platinum Pooches, Nu-You Pilates Goose Pig and Animall will be here on site showing off their talents, just some of the local businesses resident here at Foxholes Farm. Two Two’s burger shack will be selling their delicious burgers together with live music to enjoy in the farm garden. The Farm Park is also open every day throughout the school holidays and term time, open Friday – Monday 10.00am to 2.00pm.
The farm shop starts to see summer produce at long last with strawberries, asparagus, beetroot, cabbage, chard and garlic. All these vegetables and berries are great for light summer dishes and pair well with our great British BBQ food. Cooking outdoors is a must this time of year and we have everything you need to fire up that long awaited BBQ. With sizzling steaks, chops, ribs, kebabs, burgers and sausages our chillers are always full to the brim of lovely homemade and home-reared produce. BBQ boxes are great for planning family meals or entertaining, you can order these online or our butchers will put together any box to suit your needs. Charcoal and a selection of marinades and meat rubs are always on our shelves, together with summer salad dressings and stunning artisan oils.

Our luxury pods and safari tent are very popular with families or just for a tranquil relaxing stay, whichever you choose our pods are available all year round and our safari tent is available until the Autumn.
