All these areas can be visited by the general publicfor almost all the year...although...please take noteof the large signs at the entrance to each area whichtell...which tell you when certain areas are beingused for particular controlled experiments and aretherefore temporarily out of bounds to the public.
You can see for yourself what a huge area the parkcovers and a key question is always,how can wemove around?Well you have a choice of means...allenvironmentally friendly...cars are banned in thepark.We have bicycles which you can hire behind theReception block...here...the healthy ones of you can go on foot and finally there's our electrictram,powered from solar cells.You find more information about this the front entrance.
A good place to start on your tour is the Rare Breeds section.We keep goats,sheep and hensand other kinds of poultry.We are also thinking of bringing in cows and horses but we donot,as yet,have facilities for these bigger animals.The animals are fed in public twice a day and ashort lecture given on their feeding habits and nutritional needs.These are very popular withthe public but of course we mustn't lose sight of the main purpose of having this section,not assuch to preserve rare animals but to maintain the diversity of breeds to broaden the genepool for agricultural development.Green Vale changes with the seasons with different eventshappening at different times of the year.May will be perhaps our most spectacular month withthe arrival of the Canada geese and when our fruit trees will be in full blossom,but there areinteresting events on all year round...for example John Havers,our expert fly fisherman,iscurrently giving displays on the lake.Each of the sections has its own seasonalcalendar...please consult the summary board at the main entrance.And the final section,as wereturn to the Reception blocks,is the orchard.
Do take time to browse round our shop...there is a wide selection of books on wildlife,some ofthem written by local authors,and the history of farming,including organic farming,somethingwhich the park will be diversifying into in the coming months.
