Ivan Pigott is a qualified, patient teacher, and excellent green woodworker. His knowledge of wood and the techniques used to craft them is extensive, and his passion for making beautiful wooden objects will almost certainly rub off on you. The wood we use comes from the farm and it's use is part of a management plan that protects wildlife, and captures carbon. The objects we create, in some cases, will last longer than the tree species from which they have come. Delicious, hearty, vegetarian food is grown and prepared for your lunch by Mark Welch, and there's always a tasty treat for tea-time. We recommend staying the night in a yurt or shepherds hut to relaxing into farm life with the option of a forestry or organic (in-conversion) farm tour.
