Open day at Frog Firle Farm

JOIN the wardens and friends of Frog Firle Farm for an open day from 10am to 4pm this Saturday, July 16.

Bring along a picnic and enjoy a relaxing day down on the farm with activities for everyone. Delicious cream teas will be served by the staff from Birling Gap Café.

The National Trust bought the farm in 1991 with a successful public appeal, to safe guard this beautiful site for the nation. This event is to celebrate the 20 years of ownership.

Frog Firle Farm will be opening its doors and the gates to the surrounding rolling fields for a chance to have a sneak look at the history and wildlife of farm. Meet the National Trust team who will lead you through what makes Frog Firle Farm so special.

Learn about the history of the farm and its buildings. Visit the lost settlement of ‘the Courts’ archaeological site. Explore the wildflowers and butterflies of Cradle valley or watch the dragonflies and damselflies skim over the ditches and ponds. Get hands on with hurdle making, nettle cording or pond dipping.

The farm is nestled in the valley about a mile south of Alfriston, part of Britain’s newest National Park. Entry is free and there is parking available opposite the farm.
