Visually Pleasing Experience
We believe the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that meets the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We have also added Readabler to the site, which provides a quick and easy way for visitors to adjust how the website looks and behaves.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can contact us on email@example.com or talk to us at any drop-in or open day at the farm.
