Wild Harvest Hen Parties.
As hen parties and hen weekends have become more popular, it can be tricky to find a classy, creative option rather than the usual bar crawl. For a truly unique, alternative, unusual hen party Wild Harvest offers a range of crafty, relaxing and adventurous activities designed for hens with heart. All our craft activities use only natural materials such as willow, wax, cotton, hessian, clay, paper, leather, glass and wire. They are decorated and packaged using vintage style luggage labels, twine and gingham ribbon to make a range of gift items either for the hens to take home in a party bag or to use as favors or even church decorations.

We offer a mobile natural crafts session service called The Crafty Green Hen where we come to your venue for usually between 1 – 3 hours and offer a range natural crafts such as:
Beeswax candle making
Wild food forage
Foraged flower natural bath-bomb making
Tinted beeswax lip balm
Beeswax body butter
Rustic birch twig hearts
Leather-bound love journals
Willow stars (pagan fertility symbols)
Festival style hippy hair garlands
Leather cuff bracelets
And much more, see our activities page….
Each activity lasts an hour and is £15 per head (except baskets and wild food forage), you can do one to three activities but most of the hen parties do two activities: the most popular combinations are: a) bath bombs and candles (pamper kits to take home) b) wild food forage followed by foraged flower bath bombs, c) body butter and lip balm combo and d) willow stars and candles. After checking your date is available by email or phone, simply visit the group activities page to book.
Basket weaving and rag-rugging are also options but would take three hours. The prices for these activities will depend on the number of people but usually works out less per head per hour than the others email us on [email protected] if you want a price on basket weaving or rag-rugging
*Please note if you pay a deposit for a hen it is none refundable as I will have bought and prepared materials but you will not have to pay the balance if you do not wish but this goodwill gesture cannot apply if the booking is within this season.
Our craft workshops for hen parties are held at our farm in Yorkshire less than twenty minutes outside the historic city of York a great place to stay with hotels to match all budgets, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and spas. The full choice of sessions are as above.
We have a cosy room with a large table and seats and serve cakes and tea (or wine!) as part of the package here if you book three activities and are coming from off-site. Directions to us can be found below. We have ample free parking too!

Stay in our three SoulPad Tipis and hire the full site for much cheaper than a city centre hotel! Sleeping 12 (a couple of extra people can bring their own tent this would be charged at £10 per night) each tipi has a wood burning stove, coir carpet, cosy cotton bedding, towels and candles, there is a cosy communal hut with wood-burner, outside kitchenette and off-grid shower for use over the weekend plus a covered fire circle, picnic benches and pizza oven. The tipis are on decking and overlook the neighbouring fields, as you have the site to yourself you can stay up chatting around the fire but our planning regulations do require a ‘no stereo’ rule. Guests have sole use of a loo/washroom and fridge/freezer just off-site too. We can arrange add-on activities from £10 to £15 a head such as: yoga or pilates, 15/30 min massage (choice of back neck and shoulder, indian head or reflexology) all the above craft workshops, instinctive archery (think Hunger Games), a wild food foraging walk, basket weaving, rag tugging and fire-lighting. You can even make and bake your own pizza in the wood-fired pizza oven. New for 2017 is our wood-fired hot tub £100 (special offer) to use it for the duration of your stay.
Most hens like to do about three activities, one from each section ie. creative/relaxing/adventurous totalling approx. £45 per hen on top of the accommodation…..
…… meaning a cost per hen from £61 for glamping and 3 activities!!!
This leaves you enough money to go into York city either shopping or for a drink and a dance… simply look online for Anytime Travel, Streamline or Fleetways to book a minibus or couple of taxis. Our postcode for quotes is YO42 4TA.
Eat out locally at the Boot and Shoe, Ellerton or The Melbourne Arms, Melbourne (both 1.6 miles) or you can walk to our local butcher on the morning to buy fresh breakfast or lunch meat to cook over the fire. There is also of course the option to bring some pizzas for you to cook in your wood fired pizza oven. If its easier for you to have a grocery delivery of food this is possible too, all major supermarkets deliver to us and the address is Boundary Farm, YO42 4TA. You have sole use of a fridge/freezer for storing this in.
After checking your date is available by email or phone simply visit the group activities page to book.
