Interested in learning how to build your clay oven?
We are in the process of building a green roof structure and base for our new clay oven and will be running a clay oven making course on the 7th and 8th August to not only build our oven but show people how to make one for their own garden. Nothing could be nicer than the taste of freshly baked pizza, hot from the oven! Once the oven is built it can be used to cook bread, roast meat and vegetables and is a great focal point in the garden. At Fordhall Farm we will be able to use the oven when we have open days and fund raisers, as well as being able to offer it to groups wanting to have a celebration at the farm.
If you would like to book on the course, please hurry as we are limited to only 8 places. We have been fortunate in getting a grant towards the cost of materials for this whole project from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund and can offer places at the reduced cost of £60.00 for the weekend. This also includes a light lunch and refreshments. If you are on a low income and live locally we are able to offer you a place at an even more reduced rate - please ring Hannah on 01630 638696 and have a chat with her. Bests wishes Bex
