Boydell's Dairy Farm

Boydells Dairy Farm is a small working farm, open to the public and specialises in sheep milking. Set in the beautiful North Essex countryside near WETHERSFEILD, it provides a fun-packed and educational visit for children and adults alike.
Most of the usual farm animals are to be found here, but, unlike other open farms, we give you a guided tour with lots of hands-on stuff. Try your hand at milking a cow, feeding hens, riding a donkey cart or outstaring a llama. But the chief part of your visit will be the sheep milking which takes place in a modern "rapid exit" parlour, milking batches of 18 ewes at a time.
RE-OPENS Saturday 1st April 2017

Times: 2.00 – 5.00 p.m. 1st April to 3rd of September, every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and BANK HOLIDAYS (closed Good Friday)

Storybook Soldier

What is Storybook Soldiers?
As every Forces’ family knows, separation from family and loved ones can be one of the most difficult things to cope with during an operational deployment.
Storybook Soldiers is a FREE scheme which provides a link between parents who are away on operations and their children.
Soldiers are recorded reading a bedtime story for their children to listen to. 
Music and sound effects are added and the finished disk is really special.
The recording session takes no longer than 15 minutes. The soldier chooses a 
story from the approved books (this list is quite exhaustive : you probably have 
the book at home which you can bring with you)
How do I make a Storybook CD for my child?
Just contact Nic @ HIVE and make an appointment - 01223 203772
