The Yorkshire Agricultural Adventurers Summer Visit

TBC

Summer Visit Success June 2022
 

We had a very successful summer visit, it was a beautiful sunny day and we headed off to an Albonwise Farm at Low Mowthorpe where the Farm Manager Will Jones showed us around the Potato Storage facilities for their seed potatoes, which were very impressive, with various build adaptations put in to ensure the very sensitive and rare chalk stream that runs past the farm is not put at risk from any pollutants or surface run off from the Yard.

We followed this with a lovely lunch at Sledmere House.

After lunch James Fenwick, the Sledmere Farm Manager took us out on Tractors and Trailers into the Deer Park, where we were able to get up close and personal with the Deer, it was Calving season and the park was full of Hinds and their Calves, it was a really lovely afternoon and the glorious weather made it even better.

Many thanks go to our hosts who gave up their time to show us round, Will Jones at Low Mowthorpe and James Fenwick at Sledmere.

Supporting Norton College School Farm

In the summer we were approached by Norton College and asked for a donation to assist them to open the school farm again. This was closed in 2014 and the new Head Teacher is wishing to re-open this facility to benefit all of the children, those from Farms and those from the Town who don't get access to animals.

 We felt this was a very worthy cause, which meets our aims to promote agriculture, and we agreed to send a £500 donation.

We received a lovely response from the Assistant Head Mr Stones

On Monday 27th June we received notification from Yorkshire Agricultural Adventurers (YAA) that we had been awarded a £500 grant to support our farm re-opening. Thank you to the YAA as well as many other businesses and individuals for supporting this very worthwhile project. 

Mr Stones.
