Ruminant Herbal Health – A brief Introduction  13th May 10-2pm

With Medical herbalist and farmer Kate Scott BSc (Hons) Herbal Medicine 

As a farmer and shepherdess I have always had a keen interest in self selection in ruminants, and when I studied herbal medicine it gave me a much greater understanding of how the phytochemicals contained in plants work within not just the human body but within animals too. I started to understand how for example tannins help control worm burden with their astringent properties, and how other plant chemicals and micro nutrients in diverse pasture can help boost immunity within the flock or herd. 

This workshop will encompass native British plants found in meadows, hedgerows and herbal leys and explain how they can help ruminant health , with a herb walk to identify plants and talk about them in the field after a talk and an after lunch hands on workshop making simple first aid remedies with a handout and plenty of opportunity to ask questions throughout the day 

Please bring a notebook and pen and outdoor gear for the farm/herbal walk, packed lunch

Directions: We are half way between Robertsbridge and Brightling on the Brightling Road. You cannot see the house/farm from the road but we have a laid hedge along the roadside with our gateway in the middle. We are next door to Swallowfield Farm, the satnav will take you past so please look out for Swallowfield Farm, we are on the Robertsbridge side of Swallowfield.
