Blackawton farm visit for Mothers' Day
A SPECIAL farm visit event takes place on Sunday March 10 at Collaton Down Farm near Blackawton.
The event from 2pm to 4pm includes a walk across mostly level fields.
The farm visit is at the height of the lambing season so there will be plenty of young lambs and visitors may be lucky enough to see some born.
Looking after the flock of 500 ewes takes a lot of hard work and planning.

Farmer Phil Bond will explain what’s involved during the tour of the farm which has panoramic views of Dartmoor.
The farm has recently undertaken work as part of the Catchment Sensitive Farming scheme to protect the Dart Estuary
This farm visit is one of a series to raise awareness of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in particular to celebrate local farming, educating children especially about how their food is produced and the link with the landscape.
The farm has engaged in a Countryside Stewardship Scheme which involves repairing hedges and enhancing wildlife habitats, as well as reinstating an orchard. Farmer Phil Bond attends Farmers’ Markets at Kingsbridge on 1st and 3rd Saturday each month and Dartmouth on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
