NYMMO enjoyed a great day out at Stonebeck Gate Farm, Danby, for the annual Open Farm Sunday event that took place on the 11th June. This was a really great event where visitors had the opportunity to look around a real working farm, see lots of other aspects of country life as well as enjoying a lovely barbecue and home made cakes and pastries.
Our NYMMO gamekeepers alongside Brian Sweeney of Askham Bryan College chatted to lots of people about their work, the moors, habit, conservation and answered many questions, Brian’s dog Flynn also received lots of attention.
There was so much to see and do throughout the day with working sheep dog displays, sheep shearing, dry stone walling along with the opportunity of getting up close and personal with lambs, hens and even a horse.
A massive thanks to gamekeepers Peter, Adam, Tom and Brandon for their time and knowledge and they enjoyed the day out meeting lots of people.
