Things to do
Thistle & Fern flower co.
Thistle & Fern runs virtual wreath workshops, providing all the support and guidance you will need to create a beautiful 12” festive door wreath from the comfort of your own home! Tickets are £50 per person, and when you book Thistle & Fern will call to discuss your preferred style and colours, and will then create a bespoke wreath making kit (collected from the Food Hall two days prior to your workshop, or delivery POA). Booking essential as places are limited.
For the parents with slightly less energy to keep pace with the kids, there is an outside seating area from which to simply watch. Through the spring, summer and autumn seasons our gelato ice cream hut will open its hatch for a real treat after school.
Get outside and active with the kids, take full advantage of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Suffolk Food Hall sits in, enjoy the circular routes created, or wander and create your own. We welcome bikes and well behaved dogs too: so it really can be a family day out.
Whilst being home to the Food Hall, we are also a working farm. We’ve revived our herd of Red Poll cow that we cross with an Aberdeen Angus bull, which are often in the paddocks in front of the Cookhouse and we're delighted to show them off.
Ultimately, Field Fit embraces a way of getting fit and having loads of fun at the same time, making the most of the great outdoors and training in a way that will motivate you every time because it’s so varied. The best thing about bootcamp’s and OCR is that it is accessible to everyone of all abilities and ages, and it gives adults permission to channel their inner child!
