Green Farm Barn, Washington, Pulborough

If you want to try something different and learn a new skill, give one of Green Farm’s butchery courses a go. Whether you’re looking for a full day course or just a few hours’ worth, grab this opportunity to discover the intricacies of lamb butchery or delve into the art of sausage making. You can then take home the fruits of your labour.

Green’s Farm is located in the heart of the countryside, so make a weekend of it and book into the local accommodation. For instance, just over two miles away from the butchery are the stunning Byre Cottages at Sullington Manor Farm, Storrington.
