Tablehurst is a working farm with livestock. At this time of year our animals are out in pasture and are extremely sensitive to dogs, whom they view as predators. We ask that, if you have a dog and take it for a walk around the farm, it is always kept on a lead and not allowed near livestock. In addition, please make sure you dispose of any dog waste safely and away from farm land. Dog waste may harbour infectious and parasitic agents harmful (and potentially deadly) to livestock.
