Earth-Worms Hen Hire
  

 

Oak House Farm is situated in beautiful countryside at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, approximately  12 miles from the historic city of York, it was originally a commercial pig farm, then most of the land around it was sold and the barns were converted to housing. We moved here in 2004 looking for new challenges and we certainly found them!!

We operate Oak House Kune Kune from the smallholding, breeding the little friendly kune kune pig, although don't plan to have any piglets for a while as we have lots of other things going on.

'Earth-worms' is also operated from Oak House Farm, which is a business supporting outdoor learning for schools and children's nurseries, our hen hire experience is available to school and nursery settings in the York, Hull and East Riding area, find out more by clicking the link below.

We are registered with the York branch of Holidays4dogs too and offer a more personal alternative to putting your dog into kennels whilst you are away, there is plenty of space for your dog to run off steam down on the field where they can meet all the other animals.

You can also now come and stay here in our cosy little self catering annexe 'The Piggery', enjoy exploring the picturesque East Riding, pop into York for a bit of shopping and then perhaps venture down the field to collect your breakfast eggs and give one of our kune kune pigs an apple and a cuddle, please ask us for more details and look out for photos and full details on the site.

UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!

                                                           November 2015

The first snows have fallen this month and we have made sure we have a good stock of logs for the fire and straw for the animals.

Our cosy little holiday let 'The Piggery' has welcomed its first guests this month, they have all left amazing comments in the visitors book and say they can't wait to come back.

The kitchen garden has nearly come to the end of its growing period with the last red tomatoes picked from the greenhouses, there are still leeks, potatoes, kale and chard to harvest though and then the beds to dig over and cover for next years frenzied growing activity.

Winnie the Golden Retriever is now beginning to calm down and is settling into life at Oak House Farm, we are thinking of maybe letting her have some puppies next year! We still miss Molly the Collie very much but we had forgotten just how much energy a young dog has being used to Molly who at 17 was blind, deaf and just didn't move very fast anymore. Phoebe the tabby cat is also more used to Winnie now and if she pokes her nose into Phoebe's business too much she is met with a swipe across the snout to keep her in her place.

We have been busy with 'Earth-Worms' hen hire service and have had placements with our hens at the nursery at St Peters School in York and at  Blue Sky Day Nursery in Market Weighton, have a look at our Earth-Worms page to find out what our 'hen hire' experience is all about and get in touch with us if you want to know more.
Earth-Worms also offers garden hen hire in the York and East Riding area, which is maybe a project for your children or a trial to see whether hen keeping is for you.

We don't have any piglets here at Oak House Farm at the moment as we feel there is quite enough going on.

One of our photographs featured on the website, 'Brotherly Love' has been reproduced in water colour by a very talented lady called Celia Lewis and features in her new book 'The Illustrated Guide to Pigs'. It is a beautiful book with lots of interesting pig facts and info and would also make a great present for any pig enthusiast, she has also written about keeping chickens, you can see her work on her website www.celialewis.co.uk
