Based near Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, Avon Valley Ferrets is a husband and wife team passionately dedicated to the welfare and wellbeing of ferrets and polecats. We travel to and attend many craft, country and game fairs, summer shows and fetes as well as schools where we perform arena demonstrations on working ferrets, entertain members of the public with fun ferret racing and give educational talks to children. Our main objectives are to educate people and promote all aspects of welfare toward these much maligned and little known about creatures as well as showing the age old traditional method of making and setting nets in regards to rabbit control within the countryside.
