HAWARDEN ESTATE TRAIL RACES 🏃🏻‍♂️

37228687_2317501271595178_5316045566751277056_o.jpg

We are really excited to host more of Joe ‘Out-fit’ Cooper’s Summer trail races on the Hawarden Estate.

The course will explore corners of the Estate that few people get to see. Expect a few hills, but nothing too sustained - also expect some wonderfully scenic running, and tons of support and facilities provided by us here at the Farm Shop.

A well marked and marshalled 5km loop will be completed twice by 10km runners, and the family-friendly nature of the venue means that we hope the kids 1km dash will be popular too! The Canicross 5km was really popular during our Winter Trail here in December, and is great for agile dogs who don't mind a stile or two!


The races will be electronically timed and guarantee a rewarding and fun day out at the Hawarden Estate Farm Shop.

- Brief introduction to chocolate
- Make a chocolate lollipop

Those with a dairy allergy are welcome to attend as long as they are fine to handle chocolate but they won't be able to taste test any chocolate.

My chocolate supplier states that they cannot guarantee the chocolate is made in a nut free environment and therefore this is not suitable for those with a nut allergy.

All food allergies (and any food preferences) must be identified on the booking form AND brought to my attention at the very start of the workshop (as I use various flavour ingredients eg strawberry, marshmallows).

You will receive a booking confirmation email with full details for your workshop and I will aim to resend a couple of days before the workshop.

Forest Bathing / Shinrin-yoku 🍁

forest-bathing-event-page-thumbnail-min.jpg

Shinrin-yoku (which translates to Forest Bathing) has captured peoples attention everywhere. In Japan it is widely used as a preventative medicine for its beneficial effect on our wellbeing. We know instinctively that spending time out in nature is good for our soul, but now research into Forest Bathing is proving our gut feelings to be true. Join us for a morning session of relaxation techniques, meditation, earthing and nature connection, with the aim of giving you a range of techniques which you can take away and use in your own time enjoying the outdoors.

"Un-wind, de-stress, relax, turn off your phone and plug in to nature."

Stress is one of the leading cause of disease in this country so any ‘therapy’ that addresses this issue is going to be beneficial to our health. Forest bathing has been shown in scientific studies to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, this is the system that is responsible for rest and digestion, allowing the body to be in a state of calm where it can perform various tasks of repair. The bodies self-defence mechanism is activated and disease fighting cells have been shown to increase when we spend time in nature. We can see a reduction in blood pressure after only 15 minutes of Forest Bathing.

We've had great feedback from previous workshop participants. One student was overjoyed that after a session of Forest Bathing her Fitbit was showing the lowest heart rate ever recorded since she’d been wearing it!

During the session you will also be introduced to the practise of Earthing, which is having direct contact with the earth itself through barefoot walking. This has proven health benefits including a reduction in inflammatory disease, improved sleep and increased energy levels.

“The basic concept behind nature therapy is to increase physiological relaxation and act as a preventative medicine by improving the body’s natural resistance to disease, which is supressed under conditions of stress.” Prof. Yoshifumi Miyazaki, author of Shinrin-yoku: The Japanese Way of Forest Bathing for Health & Relaxation.

The session will include; meditations, barefoot walking (earthing), sit spots, mindfulness exercises, nature awareness and wild teas enjoyed around the campfire. All this will take place in the grounds of the Harwarden Estate against the backdrop of the woodlands, orchards and fields.

This session is suitable for anyone over the age of 18. The class runs for 3 hours, from 10am until 1pm and costs £30 PER PERSON

“Shinrin-yoku”, which can be defined as “taking in the forest atmosphere" or forest bathing, has been receiving increasing attention in Japan in recent years for its capacity to provide relaxation and reduce stress. Scientific studies have shown certain stress indicators, such as cortisol levels and sympathetic nervous system is lowered when time is spent in a forest as compared with an urban environment.

"We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something seperate from us. So, when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves." Andy Goldsworthy

After a series of successful evening workshops here at the Farm Shop we are excited to announce a silver jewellery workshop with Francasca of Anuka.

Anuka is an ethical jewellery brand that creates contemporary collections and bespoke commissions alongside running jewellery workshops perfect for any event or party.

During the evening you can design you’re very own bespoke ring using the traditional technique of wax carving with a complimentary glass of prosecco and some sweet treats

Anuka's workshops are creative, relaxed and a perfect group activity. You will be guided through the techniques involved in wax carving along with the lost wax casting process. The finished carving will be transformed into solid silver and polished by hand returned to you 3 weeks later, packaged, pretty and ready to wear!


No previous experience necessary. Added options are available for gold vermeil plating, solid gold, engravings and hallmarking that can be decided and paid for on the night.
