If you’ve ever tasted the locally grown beef sold on occasions by Tony Luckhurst in Melbourne Avenue you’ll know it is absolutely delicious – it melts in the mouth. The beef will almost certainly have come from Rowley Farm near Slough, which is pretty local for West Ealing.
Rowley Farm lies three miles north of Slough and is home to three generations of the Whitby family. As well as the beef cattle, the farm grows various cereal crops and is now part of Natural England’s Higher Level Stewardship Scheme, so looking after the wildlife is a key part of the farm’s role.
This Sunday (12th June) is Open Farm Sunday when the farm is open to the public from 10am to 5pm. There are tractor and trailer rides along with children’s activities, a live band and hot food. You can watch the cows being milked at 2pm and meet the other animals – calves, chickens and a pony.
