The Summer Programme – Eastbrook Farm

Eastbrook Farm covers about 1500 acrs running from the top of the Marlborough Downs down to the clay lands of the Vale of the White Horse. The land is owned by the Church of England and managed by the Browning family as an organic farm, with arable crops, a dairy herd, beef cattle, ewes, pigs, and new orchard planting. The farm supports a good range of wildlife with deer, foxes, badgers, hawks, owls, hare and many other birds.
