What you can do

As a business promoting environmental sustainability, The Wellbeing Farm endeavours to minimise and reduce its impact on the environment.
Whether you’re a guest, please help us achieve our goals by remembering these guidelines:

WHAT YOU CAN DO AS A GUEST AT OUR VENUE

R

Leave the car behind

When travelling to our Farm, consider public transport such as trains, coaches or buses, or even walk or cycle if you can

R

Please do not litter

Please either put any rubbish in one of our bins or take it home with you.

We have separate bins for general waste, recycling and compost/food waste; please ensure you put any waste into the correct bin

R

Please don’t leave any taps running

When using the toilets, please do not place anything other than loo roll down the toilet as any other product will block our water treatment plant

When drying your hands, please do not use excessive hand towels

R

Respect the animals

Treat them as you would like to be treated yourself. Handle carefully, do not aggravate and appreciate that from time to time they too need their privacy

R

Please Smoke in the Shelter

If you smoke, please put the cigarette butts in the correct holders in our smoking shelter

R

Strictly no Fireworks

Please respect that we don’t support fireworks, as they scare our animals

More Guidelines

We ask you to respect our aim to eradicate single-use plastic in our business and that you do not use the following things during your wedding:

  • Plastic glittery sprinkles
  • Non-bio-degradable confetti
  • Balloons
  • Sky lanterns
  • Plastic water bottles
  • Plastic cups
  • Disposable decorations
  • Products and favours which contain a lot of plastic packaging

At Christmas, please respect we don’t support the use of Christmas crackers – too much single-use plastic

Use local suppliers where possible

Be a greener couple, buy preloved

Maybe you don’t fancy a second-hand wedding dress but wedding decor is a great place to start: https://www.sellmywedding.co.uk/

Electrical Equipment

Think when you Eat

If you need to use the kettle, please only fill to however much you need. You don’t always need to fill it up to the brim.

Had a banana for dinner? You can feed the skins to the donkeys instead of them going in the bin!
