Tickets sell quickly so be sure not to miss out and secure your place online now for just £99+VAT per person.

A group of up to 30 will have the opportunity to visit Chandler & Dunn, an ethical, family farming business with roots dating back over 200 years in Kent. With around 610 hectares covering two farms within three miles of each other, Goldstone Farm at Ash and Perry Farm at Wingham, East Kent, everything they produce is 100% British, supplying high quality fruit, meat and arable produce to national supermarkets, local shops and restaurants – and direct to the public from ‘Goldstone Butchers’. Their three main enterprises are Livestock (including a pedigree Sussex herd), Fruit and Arable, plus Goldstone Butchers.

The Chandler & Dunn approach to farming is simple. They harness modern techniques and technology to traditional, environmentally friendly values and methods. Their carefully monitored, integrated pest management control process uses minimal mineral pesticides.

Attendees will enjoy a presentation by Charlie Dunn, who will give an overview of their methods and activities. The group will take in a walking tour of the top-fruit orchards leading onto the pre-sizer/grader and the farm’s cold storage facilities. Foodies will enjoy a visit to the onsite family butcher and the day will conclude with a special lunch using produce from the farms, before setting off back to London by coach.
