Land Rover Tour of Rickham Farm

We are delighted that James and Ann Jones have invited members of Salcombe Yacht Club to visit their farm by open top Land Rover and trailer on Saturday 23rd September.

The farm extends from the South Pool Creek at Yalton/Goodshelter across to Limebury Point, east to Gara and includes land above Decklers Cliff at West Prawle. So members will undoubtedly have seen it from the water. This is a chance to see what goes on there! The farming is a mix of cattle and sheep grazing with organic cereals. The farm is heavily involved in wildlife and historic landscape conservation under an agri-environment scheme drawn up with help from the RSPB. It extends to just over 200 hectares (500 acres).

The programme is as follows:

10.00                     Pick up from the car park in East Portlemouth. Those wishing to come over from Salcombe by ferry can take the short walk directly up from the ferry landing slip.
Farm tour with a stop for coffee and biscuits.

13.00                     Lunch at the Gara Rock Restaurant. http://www.gararock.com/eating-and-drinking/

15.00ish                Return to car park or Ferry Landing in East Portlemouth

This event has already been fully booked, but we look forward to offering other dates in the future.  Keep an eye on our website and social media platforms to get a place on our next visit.
