A field of gold

Meet the CLA members who are using their Daffodil Field to raise money for Marie Curie UK

Jane and Lizzie Hulton-Harrop who farm in partnership at Pollardine, have used some land which they had in hand to create a field of Daffodils. People are invited to visit the field and donate to Marie Curie UK.

Pollardine Farm is based in the Gatten Valley, to the East of the Stiperstones in the Shropshire Hills. They are passionate about farming and nature working hand in hand, and use holistic management to deliver this effectively.

The Daffodil Field was planted in the Autumn of 2015 with it first flowering in the Spring of 2016. It has gone from strength to strength and is now something of a landmark.

The field they chose to plant is at 1,100 feet and on a North facing slope so the flowers are generally late to bloom, but if you keep an eye on their social media pages, you can see the best time to visit.

The Daffodils arrived as 170,000 Carlton daffodil bulbs; Jane and Lizzie hope that the site will give people a place to come and contemplate, and perhaps to remember someone special.

Marie Curie nurses give people the opportunity to remain at home during the difficult stages of a terminal illness.

Planted to raise money for Marie Curie, our Daffodil Field is a beautiful sight and an ideal spot for contemplation. We are delighted to see people enjoying it each year
