Hi there - are the deer fed at a particular time of day or does it vary please? Thank you.

Thank you for your question. The deer feeding at Bolderwood takes place during the summer holidays any time between 1pm and 3pm.

Forestry Commission Response

Please could you let us know how much it costs (per day/week) to feed the deer. Does it vary according to the season?

with thanks
