    The pods will be marketed as a farm stay, where guests will have the option to visit and learn about the livestock and the running of the farm, get their hands dirty and help with the work on the farm. The project will also enable the far to be opened up to the public to offer learning for children to understand where produce comes from. Local people will also have the opportunity to come and have the same experience on their doorstep without having to pay extra to stay on farm.

    There new glamping site will include the installation of free electric charge points on site for anyone using an electric vehicle. Solar thermal panels will provide hot water and Solar panels will provide power to the pods ensuing the pods are eco-friendly and helping reduce the farm's carbon foot print.

    The funding will be used to cover the cost of preparing the on site infrastructure and the purchase and installation of the pods, BBQ huts, and hot tubs.
