Autumn is coming at Eastbrook Experiences


Based in Bishopstone, just outside Swindon, Helen Browning's Eastbrook is an organic farm with a wealth of wildlife and nature to explore. Eastbrook Experiences offers a range of workshops and courses designed to bring you closer to nature and learn more about this fantastic world we live in.

After a long, hot and very dry summer, the farm is finally enjoying some much needed rain. The once-shrivelled blackberries and elderberries in the hedgerows are finally looking as juicy as the apples; and we are busy picking, juicing and jamming for the delight of guests staying at Helen Browning's Royal Oak.

The change of seasons is palpable and if, like many, September signals that 'back to school' feeling (regardless of your age!) we hope our autumn offering may have something that appeals to you. See below for a small selection of our painting, photography and foraging workshops.

Or if that all feels too structured, we offer our Farm Tours, guided walks and picnics year-round. Book on the website or give us a call.
