Wright's Care Farm Project
Bratton Fleming, Kentisbury, EX31 4RT
Discover the planets and stars with our telescopes, learn how to detect the bats of Kentisbury, and craft your own fresh stone-baked pizza at Barton Farm.
Join Liz from Moor Wild Experiences and The Wright’s Family to search the night sky with two telescopes and stargazing apps.
At dusk, learn how to identify the active bats with our bat detector on a short circular walk around our beautiful 16th Century barn.
Prepare and enjoy your own crafted hot stone-baked pizza with a glass of bubbly!
