Yesterday we had a lovely walk around Occombe Farm, seeing some vegetable growing, also pigs and chickens, wandered through woods and fields, followed by a lovely fresh lunch in their cafe (http://www.occombe.org.uk/mainintro.cfm?id=335), which overlooks beautiful Devon farming countryside.
Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust is is a local, independent charity dedicated to looking after some of Torbay's most important wildlife and heritage sites. Their aims are to protect land, conserve nature and strengthen the bonds between the people and the natural world of Torbay. 

They manage 1750 acres of country parks, nature reserves, woodland, farmland and coastline in Torbay, including Berry Head National Nature Reserve, Cockington Country Park, Occombe Farm and the Seashore Centre as well as much of the English Riviera Geopark.

Whilst we were there yesterday I rejoined the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust.  Although it's nice to get the discounts - and encourages us to get out and about - it's also good to support such an important venture.
