Book Now For Lancashire Day Farm Walk

Five generations of farming history will be brought to life to celebrate Lancashire Day later this month. farm walk 3

The Farm Burscough, Tea Room and Restaurant, is marking the annual event with a series of Farm Walks to explain how agriculture has changed throughout the generations.

The walks around the Martin Lane farm, which backs-on to Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, will be guided by farmers, Bill and Freda Neale.

They will show people, through the eyes of the family, how farming has developed in Lancashire and how diversifying into also running a farm shop, tea-room restaurant and four-star B&B have changed their lives.

They will be pointing out interesting plants, animals and birds along the way; as well as giving people a background history of the farm, look at the different crops and an opportunity to meet the free-range pigs and hens. Because of its location a vast variety of bird species can be seen along the popular walk which also takes in the farm’s fishing lakes.

The walk is all on flat, level, ground and will last around 30 minutes before returning to the Tea Room for a traditional Lancashire Hotpot, a nice hot drink and a slice of cake.

guided walkThe Neales have been farming in Burscough for generations and many of the family still live along Martin Lane. They now produce a large range of vegetables in smaller batches to meet the demands of their business alongside the numerous farmer’s markets they take part in across the north west each month.

Freda said: “We thought that this event would be a great way to mark Lacashire Day. It is an opportunity for people to enjoy the countryside, meet new people and find out about rural life – which plays such an important part in Lancashire’s heritage, present and future.”

The walks, which set off at 3.45pm on Wednesday, November 27, can be pre-booked and cost just £12.50 per person, including hotpot, cake and drink.

Among The Best In Lancashire

Freda and Cathy celebrate their latest award.

Freda and Cathy celebrate their latest award.

Our tea-room / restaurant has been ranked among the best eateries in the county.

The Farm Burscough has won the coveted “Highest Quality Assured Award” from tourist board Visit Lancashire – for the second year running. 

The award acknowledges that the Farm has shown excellence in customer service and food and drink provision. 

The judges decided that the tearoom/restaurant again provided a consistently high quality eating experience while using locally sourced and homegrown produce. 

The award assessment was carried out by a mystery diner, to gain a true perception of the venue, and the business was marked against a series of stringent criteria. 

The Highest Quality Assured Award is given to eateries achieving only the top scores as part of the assessment. 

Freda Neale, of the Farm Burscough, said: “We get many lovely comments from our customers about the quality of our food and service. People always seem to enjoy visiting us on the farm and that means a lot. But it is also great that we have been officially recognised again in this way. 

“To be considered one of the best in Lancashire is fantastic for us as and the fact that the assessment was done in secret makes it even more relevant. 

“I hope that us getting another award again reminds Lancastrians of the quality establishments they have on their doorsteps – especially down on the Farm!” 

The Farm Burscough is a homely tearoom restaurant and farm shop in a renovated 18th Century brick-barn in the heart of West Lancashire. The building, on Martin Lane, also houses a small rural four-star, bed and breakfast.

Annual Pumpkin Competition Launched

WINNER: An amazing entry from the Livesley Family last year.

We are encouraging people to sharpen their knives for Halloween – with the launch of our third annual pumpkin carving competition.

With an incredible response over the last two years, The Farm Burscough, is once again asking artistic vegetable fans to come up with their best design.            

Children, big and small, are being encouraged to carve their most scary and creative Halloween pumpkins to stand a chance of a selection of prizes from the farm – including an overnight stay in our 4 star B&B and a family meal for four in our tea room restaurant.

 

To stand a chance of winning you simply need to bring along your carved pumpkins to The Farm Burscough, on Martin Lane, Burscough, between Monday, October 22, and October 30, for judging to take place. 

The designs will be judged in age categories and then an overall winner and second place will be selected on Halloween, October 31.

Pumpkin Man making a coffee

 

Cathy Grice, of the Farm Burscough, said: “We had an amazing variety of designs last year with some very detailed carvings. The entries were so impressive that we decided to make this an annual competition. 

“It started off as a bit of fun and we had a go at making our own spooky designs using our own home-grown pumpkins. But there seems to be a particular talent for pumpkin carving in West Lancashire and many of our customer put us to shame – so we are hoping for another fine crop of entries this year!

“There are some great recipes using pumpkins so you can have great fun carving and also end up with a tasty treat as well!”

Dry Enough for Combining at Last

Finally we have managed to get some grain out of the fields and into the barn.

The recent wet weather has meant that we have had to hold off with the harvest until the wheat is dry and ground is firm enough to get the combine and tractors into the field without getting stuck.

As you can see our harvester is not exactly the most up to date model!! But it has done a great job in the hands of David. Hope you enjoy the pics of a fantastic summer scene – shame it’s autumn!!
