Richard & Inger Mee,Oakley Grange Farm,Shepshed Road,Hathern, Leicestershire, LE12 5LL 

Farm Background: We are a mixed organic farm of approximately 660 acres , organic since 2001. Our main enterprises are beef, sheep, pigs and arable. We have been farming under an environmental scheme since 2003, first we had a CSS agreement and now have signed up for a HLS, where we have a vast area of flower margins and half the land managed for breeding and over wintering waders in the Soar Valley. We produce our own animal feed and grow all cereals and pulses for both pigs and cattle.  We have recently converted an old barn into a cafe/farm shop, where we use as many of our own products as possible.

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.

Hedge-Blog: Looking for love...

Alex Firman: Well, our hedgehog is certainly out of hibernation now thanks to the warm (and sometimes wet) June weather, although sadly I don’t have the photos to prove it - apparently our little hedgehog is a wee bit camera shy. Although hibernation is long past, I will still be putting out food and water for our hedgehog who will be low on energy after their long sleep. I’m sure anything that makes foraging that bit easier will be appreciated.
