It gives us great pleasure to receive such positive feedback about our courses – from Lyndsey Eborall of Solstice Alpacas: “I wanted to thank you both so very much for all the knowledge you shared with us on the Fowberry birthing course. I found I could refer to my notes over and over yesterday for our first birth; the notes gave me a simple way to take the emotion out and be practical.”

10am to 4pm.
