Natalie has a background in medical treatment at Ashbank Vet Centre and teaching Animal Management and Care at Norton College
Natalie has a talent for understanding animals and their needs, and the time and care she has spent socialising them means your visit can be special; up-close, safe and memorable. See what Animal Encounter Courses we offer.
Conservation of endangered species has always been close to Natalie's heart, so keeping Rare Breed
livestock has become a priority. We keep the Large Black
pig and extraordinary Mangaliza
, which have been overlooked by the pig industry! Find out why on an academic course
that explores the genetics of pedigree, agricultural productivity, and efficiency of energy transfer.
Natalie shares her story of life-threatening illness from Crohns Disease
as a teenager, and how a natural diet of raw whole milk, pesticide-free fruit and vegetables, and antibiotic-free meat has transformed her gut microbiome. At the time of writing, Dr Tim Spector
is leading the cutting-edge research into understanding the far-reaching effects of our symbiotic gut bacteria, natural fungi and harmless viruses in our intestines.
