Good Footwear is essential for safety, we recommend you wear gumboots or strong shoes no open toed shoes or jandals. chestnut husks are very spiky!

Bring along some foodtongs to save on bending, we have some that can be borrowed but sometimes we don’t have enough.

Please note Chestnut tree farm is a farm and as such there are safety hazards, such as animal water troughs, a large duck pond, and electric boundary fence, so children need to be closely supervised at all times. Please respect our farm animals and bird life and don’t feed them without checking with your hosts first. If Children would like to feed the sheep, Elizabeth is happy to introduce Buttercup, Marigold and baby sue to you for pats and photos.
