Immersive Regenerative Farm Experience
From cider-making to green burial sites, Risbury Court Farm is a very special place.
With 250 acres around the ramparts of the iron-age hillfort of Risbury Camp is a traditional Herefordshire mixed farm of hops, cider fruit, cereals, sheep and pedigree Hereford cattle. Having been farmed since 1843, this picturesque spot has been in the same family for decades. The farm is now run by Richard Thomas and his father, a fifth-generation farmer who is somewhat of a maverick in his regenerative approach to agriculture.
Richard is an accomplished speaker and with his extensive knowledge of regenerative farming techniques, explains how long-term, sustainable food production can be delivered not only profitably, but also with huge co-benefits for soils, water, biodiversity and the climate.
There will be the chance to roll up your sleeves and get involved in important Spring hedge maintenance. Hedges are important wildlife habitats, providing shelter and food for many animals, including birds, insects, and small mammals. In spring, many animals are actively seeking places to nest and breed, so hedges are a valuable habitat.
After the tour and hedge maintenance, you are welcomed to the cosy Kiln Room where Rich will have a variety of his produce available for purchase.
