The North York Moors are now officially an International Dark Sky Reserve (one of only twenty in the whole world) as awarded by the International Dark Sky Association. A star-filled sky is one of nature's most natural wonders but they are becoming harder than ever to experience. An area of low light pollution, such as in our National Parks, is a stargazer’s paradise where you could see as many as 2,000 twinkling above you. We’re very lucky here on Green Farm to be out in the countryside and able to enjoy the stars.
There are a number of events being held for all ages – stargazing safaris, night walks, space-themed crafting sessions, night bike rides, runs and kayaking. For the full list follow this link Dark Skies Festival: North York Moors events.
Wanting a slower pace? Wrap up warm, step outside, look up and simply marvel at the beauty of our amazing night skies. To make the experience even more special (and to ward off the chilly night air) enjoy a nip of one our beautifully crafted fruity liqueurs. Our Sloe Gin is velvety rich and jammy with aromatic fruits and gentle almond notes. Or try our Bramble Whisky; we take a 3 year old lowland blended Scottish Whisky and steep it with rich and mellow blackberries. These liqueurs are the very essence of country winter walks, crunchy autumnal leaves and cosy times by the fire.
