Shonnas enthusiasm and knowledge combined with her wonderful welcome and fabulous hospitality made it a perfect way to experience new things in an environmentally friendly way. Gorgeous, peaceful location. Enjoyed meeting the animals and the plentiful banquet in the treehouse was a perfect way to finish it off. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic and unique way to spend your day. The foraging and gin making alone was good, learning and participating. This was made 10 times better by having beautiful food in the gorgeous tree house. It was clean, warm and a futility experience from start to finish. Thank you !

Shonna and Ben were fantastic hosts, very welcoming. It was a delight to visit the farm for a gorgeous winter afternoon. Shonna is clearly very passionate about her work and her lifestyle, and happy to share her knowledge and insight with you. We are really looking forward to visiting Shonna and Ben again, perhaps for some candle or soap making!

It was a fantastic experience so much more then we expected. We had wonderful time meeting Shonna and learning about Gin and the different herbs and spices that go into making some. She was very knowledgeable and all the little touches truly made it unforgettable. The tree house was lovely and cozy as well. Looking forward to going back and learning more from her and enjoying all her farm has to offer.

This was a present for my grandma (81 this year). She absolutely adored it - the place was utterly magical and was totally tickled pink by the tree house (not to mention the gin!). Shonna was a fantastic host who really knew her stuff and made everyone feel really welcome. A truly wonderful experience - we shall be returning with the rest of the family. Thank you Shonna x
