If you love daffodils, beautiful countryside, and a lovely day out, then come along to The Whitegate Daffodil Farm Open days. Enjoy a guided daffodil walk near the village of Whitegate, in the heart of the Vale Royal, Cheshire with all proceeds to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Guided by Len Tomlinson, you’ll find out about daffodil growing, propogating, competitions, local history of the area, Wildlife, Folklore and farming, and see many varieties of daffodils that have been cultivated for over a century.

The Open days and Daffodil walks are made during the height of the growing season – this year we are Open from Wednesday 29th March until Sunday 9th April 2017 10am – 4pm with a guided tour daily at 10.30am (booking required)  but every year is different as are the varieties that you’ll see!

Walks in the afternoon are available by special arrangement for pre-booked  groups.

Christmas 2017 Update

The daffodils are very happy this month, lots of rain and then a downfall of snow and frost to slow them down a bit. They should be on target for the normal dates this coming year! We will have the walks available from Wednesday 28th March to Sunday 8th April inclusive.

I’ve taken some dry straw and feathers down to the magic oak and all the wildlife is out and very active.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Last chance!

The weather is gorgeous, the fields are glorious, and there’s still just chance to book the last few places for the last guided tour which is on tomorrow (Sunday 9th April) at 10:30am.

Hoping you can join us for the tour, and of course you can come to enjoy the walks today or tomorrow as usual!

The first walks of the year!

It’s been a busy first few days at the Daffodil Farm -we’ve welcomed some new visitors and it has been lovely to see our regular supporters again!  The Daffodils are looking spectacular and there’s been an awful lot of activity in the Magic Oak Fairy Tree.

On Friday we were blessed with sunshine, which was perfect as we had a visit from the local preschool with 26 lively toddlers (and their helpers) enjoying the Fairy trail and the Daffodil fields.

Something for young and old alike!
