Study Day: the Development of Deer Parks
Reediehill Deer Farm, Auchtermuchty, and Falkland Palace, Fife
Sunday 18 July
We will spend the morning in the company of John and Nichola Fletcher at Reediehill. John is a specialist deer vet and Nichola is a cookery writer and chef. John will talk to us about the history of deer parks, followed by Nichola who will tell us something of the history of cooking venison. Nichola will also provide us with lunch at the farm. In the afternoon we will visit Falkland Palace to look out over the deer park from the viewing platform and walk out to the trenches.
The track up to Reediehill is not coach-friendly so members will need to make their own way there. Car-share will be arranged where possible. if all else fails, it is possible to come by train to Ladybank Station from where we would arrange a lift up to the farm and back to the station at the end of the day. The cost includes coffee and lunch.
