Experience this special place first hand during the farm’s annual Life in the Meadows Day. Insect expert John Walters will be there to lead two hands-on sessions at 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm. There’ll be nets, pots and ID charts to help catch and learn about some of the wonderful mini-beasts that live in the meadows – as well as time to look at many of the beautiful flowers.

These events are free, but donations are welcome for Devon Wildlife Trust.
