Established in 1983, the farm has grown from one hectare to six hectares. That's about twelve football pitches or one decent size motorway intersection. In fact, 2008 saw us bringing a further four hectares into organic cultivation, which takes us into the realm of small airport runways.
We grow a lot of salad, which is really nice stuff to eat. We also grow apples, beans, celery, cucumbers, dill, endive, fennel, garlic, herbs, jerusalem artichokes, kale, leeks...and so on.
We've about 150 laying hens, which provide our very popular eggs, and rear bronze turkeys for Christmas dinners -note in 2012 we are taking a break from rearing turkeys. We will be supplying other local organic meat, but not turkeys.
A lot of our produce we sell through the farm shop and veg boxes, the rest is distributed on a merit basis to other box schemes, shops, and restaurants...
