What a lovely time I had with my two kids at Hen corner this month! Sara was very friendly and welcoming to her home. We were offered teas, coffees and drinks and lovely hot homemade biscuits and cakes straight out the oven! The course was very informative and has got me thinking about getting my own hens. My kids loved cuddling the hens and learning how to look after them. We got a wonderful goodie bag with some eggs included as well as the kids making egg cup holders with their own decorating on it. I am looking forward to booking the bee course soon! Thanks so much Sara for sharing all your knowledge with us!

A relaxed professional course for children and their adults to learn about keeping hens in & around London, highlighting the benefits and difficulties you can come across. Brilliantly presented with a eggcellent goody bag to take home.
Both my children aged 12 & 8 learnt and enjoyed the morning. The coffee & cakes tasted lovely too.

Four of us from Disability Network Hounslow spent a relaxing afternoon making piccalilli, savoury apple jelly and chutney. We sat round a table in the conservatory looking out on to the garden where the chickens live. Sara welcomed us with tea and home-made cakes and remembered that one person needed gluten-free flour. Sara gave us detailed recipes and encouraged us to try variations on the ingredients in future, including using vegetables from our allotment. Sara had prepared apples and some of the vegetables in advance as they had to stand overnight but there was plenty of chopping and mixing for us all to do. She explained the reasons for each stage to ensure good hygiene and effective preservation as well as balancing the flavours and textures.
We finished with more tea and cakes and each had three types of pickle to take home.

As the other reviewers have said, it was a great evening sitting in Sara's garden with Pimms and home-made egg mayo sandwiches, then getting to know her 23 chickens with lots of information and wrapping up with tea and an amazing Victoria sponge with her home made jam. It was so good to learn so much about the chickens and has made me more certain than ever that I'd like to keep them - just need to find a space!
