Wow - I am now well pickled
Aug 2021
I had a marvellous day on the pick and pickle course. I came away with 4 delicious jars of produce as well as lots of new information. I feel as if I could pickle or chutney most vegetables and cannot wait to make more of my own. Just waiting for some surplus produce to get cracking on. I will be back to learn more skills.

Patient, careful explanations and fun!
Aug 2021 • Family
My 6 year old granddaughter was very keen to keep chickens until she encountered Sarah’s huge pure breed hens! It took two hours of patience, in which we learnt a huge amount , but she stroked a chicken by the time we left. Thanks so much Sarah I’m looking forward to collecting our own eggs soon.

Relaxed garden haven

I booked the 'Day at Hen Corner' after seeing great Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Sara was so lovely, making us all feel welcome and covid-safe as she guided us through making bread and jam (including a pizza for lunch) then introduced us to the chickens and bees.
We took home our bread and jam (which was spectacular, even if I do say so myself) and a few other Hen Corner goodies we couldn't resist purchasing.

Friday afternoon treats for the weekend!
Jun 2021
One of the joys of living in Brentford is the weekly treat of collecting our order of wonderful bread and pastries from Sara's home kitchen. Every Friday afternoon from 5pm -7pm, you'll see local people making their way to her house overlooking St. Paul's Recreation Ground. The door will be flung open and the gorgeous smell of baking wafts into the street. You'll be greeted by Sara, in her chef's whites, with a big smile, slightly pink in the cheeks and flour in her hair. OK, I made that last bit up. But you get the idea. It's really easy to order from the website and she always has special treats for feast days like Christmas and Easter. Enjoy!

Brilliant time with the Brentford Bees (not the football variety!)
Jun 2021
We had an amazing day yesterday with Sara at Hen Corner doing a one day bee-keeping course. We learned so much about bees and how to look after them, and Sara was a fabulously entertaining host - PLUS delicious pastries from the Hen Corner bakery and a home-made lunch to die for!
Can't recommend highly enough - thanks Sara.

Fantastic experience
Apr 2021
Hen Corner came to visit our primary school with 4 of their chickens - such a lovely and enjoyable experience for our pupils, who were engaged and also learned a lot.

Thoroughly Enjoyable Day
Apr 2021
I attended the full day sourdough bread making course. From the moment Sara greeted me and two other guests, we had a great experience. Sara put us at our ease and explained what we would be making during the day. Everything went according to plan. Sara was incredibly well organised and answered all our queries as they arose. Lovely choice of breads baked, both savoury and sweet, and we all came home with a goodie bag which was a very welcome treat.
To be fed and watered as well helped to make this a wonderful experience. I will now consider other courses Sara has to offer.
