An Introduction to Hedgelaying

A one day introductory course to hedge-laying.

  • Booking essential

Hedge-laying is the ancient craft of creating a living, natural boundary to a livestock field or garden. Using little more than a chopping tool called a billhook, it is the natural old-fashioned way to stock-proof your field for sheep or cattle. On this very hands-on course, our experienced farm staff will work alongside you to create a new laid hedge.
