Lovely to have you with us, we hope you enjoy the listen. Harvest has started on Deepdale Farm, lovely to have customers staying with us on the campsite and in the rooms. Lots in this episode, including Dominic from Wild Ken Hill, preview of Deepdale Festival, Farm Chat, local wildlife, music recommendations, Katherine Priddy and what’s on.
Wild Ken Hill (as featured on BBC Springwatch)
Nathan and Jason headed over to Wild Ken Hill, neighbours on our lovely Norfolk Coast, to chat with Dominic and Nick about regenerative farming and rewilding. So lovely to be able to visit this fabulous estate, learn more about their plans, meet some of the livestock, and a big thank you to Dominic for joining us on the podcast.
Deepdale Festival 2021 Preview
Chris takes us through the amazing line-up he’s brought together for Deepdale Festival 2021. With 6 weeks to go, we are getting exciting about welcoming these incredible artists to Deepdale for what should be a fabulous weekend of live music.

As Deepdale Farm harvests its first organic (in conversion) crops, Nathan & Jason stand in the empty grain shed and chat about what we might expect from harvest this year.

Oli updates us on the wildlife we are likely to see this Autumn, explaining that despite it being the Summer holidays, wildlife is already preparing for Autumn.
Call in and have a chat with them anytime to learn more about local wildlife and the kit to watch it with.

Safe to say that this album is a favourite for the whole team at Deepdale. Chris has booked this wonderful artist for Deepdale Festival 2021, and in the meantime we are all loving the album, which is a beautfiul piece of work.
You can enjoy a sample of Ring O’Roses in this episode of the podcast.
by Christina Alden & Alex Patterson
Many of you will know Christina and Alex as 2 of the incredibly talented trio, Alden Patterson & Dashwood. This album is a lovely listen, and you know we love local musicians, especially when they are this good.
