Alison Park FRSA invites Fellows to an afternoon at Low Sizergh Barn, Kendal.
Cumbria is home to some of Britain’s oldest farms and agricultural traditions, and records show that there has been a farm on the Low Sizergh site since the 13th century. Once the home farm of Sizergh Castle, providing food for the Strickland family estate, the farm now sends many thousands of litres of milk to Kendal to be made into desserts and yogurt, some to a local ice cream maker and to a Lancashire cheesemaker to be made into Kendal Creamy cheese.
341 acres in total, Low Sizergh Farm is home to 170 red, brown, black and white cows (it’s a cross bred herd of Holsteins, Swedish Red and Montbeliards), 700 hens, and a flock of 200 Swaledale and Mule sheep. The farm has always been working proof that good practice can lead to excellent productivity and enhanced animal welfare.
The event will start at 12:00pm with a light lunch and hot drinks provided and of course an opportunity to meet and connect with other FRSAs. After lunch there will be a tour of the farm led by Alison Park.
Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Taking part in RSA in-person events
We've been looking forward to finally being able to meet together in person. But of course recognise it is important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone.
We aim to have assurances from all venues that they will have basic COVID-safety processes in place.
We’re asking all attendees of events to be respectful of personal space, to be mindful of others preferences in regards to social distancing and to respect those that are wearing face coverings.
To participate in the event, you will need to register for a ticket so we can make sure we have an up-to-date list of those who plan on attending. This is for capacity purposes.
We request that all attendees evaluate their own health and that of those they’re in close contact with. We encourage all attendees that are sick or showing symptoms of illness to stay home and to cancel your Eventbrite ticket if you are no longer able to join the event.
Given the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, please always check your latest national Government guidance in addition to following our baseline guidance enclosed here. If guidelines do change, the event may be cancelled at short notice.
