We are a small permaculture based farm, specialising in regenerative agriculture and providing a space for people to reconnect to nature. We currently have some sheep, dairy cows, pigs in the summer and chickens. We have a kitchen garden and polytunnel and 2020 will see the start of our market garden consisting of 100 no dig beds. We also have a small orchard and several new agroforestry lanes which will hopefully provide fruit whilst still be able to graze sheep cows and hens between the lanes. We believe a healthy farm should be complex not complicated and we look forward to working with everyone that wants to get involved.
