Our organic produce is sold via the local organic box scheme, at local producer fairs and from the smallholding. We are also arranging to sell through a local farm shop.
We have 27 raised beds and two polytunnels and all work is done by hand to minimise environmental impact. This way the plants get individual attention and high quality is maintained. Where possible, crops are sown in succession to maximise continuity of supply. We don’t grow huge amounts of anything but have a variety of over 50 different crops so that if one doesn’t do so well, another will probably be thriving. We do not use chemicals to grow our produce and are currently registered with the Soil Association.
We choose varieties for flavour and pest resistance and use open pollinated varieties when possible as we will be experimenting with seed saving. This will enable us to save money and to develop strains which are adapted to the local environment. This will also give us the opportunity to maintain some heritage varieties which are in danger of being lost.
Quality and flavour are really important to us and we do our best to bring you produce which is at its peak and more often than not it will have been picked only hours before it is sold.

We have just fenced 4 acres of pasture and will employ some pigs to plough up half an acre so we can grow some crops on a larger scale. We will also have some more chickens to keep up with our egg sales. Sheep may be run on the rest of the pasture to help maintain grass quality. So, this autumn we may be offering pork for sale too.
