    We provide learning experiences to enhance the public’s understanding of farming and demonstrate how food can be produced in a sustainable way. These include:

    Adult learning workshops – in three broad areas: horticulture, eco-building, food and cookery;

    Children’s activities – including Forest School, vegetable growing and theatre workshops;

    School visits – primary and secondary;

    Employee volunteering/team building.


    Why learn with us?

    The Farm is a real-life example of community-owned organic agriculture;

    Specialists in particular areas of expertise lead our workshops and visits, be they our own staff or carefully-selected tutors;

    Many of our workshops and activities are ‘hands-on’, so you can learn by doing;

    Learning takes place in the setting of a working farm, so it is easier to see how what you learn might be applied in the real world;

    We are located in beautiful surroundings overlooking Chew Lake;

    We have a purpose-built yurt for the indoor elements of our workshops and visits; there are also toilets, hand-wash, and tea and coffee-making facilities;

    The farm provides an opportunity for you to socialise with other members of your community.


    Also offers box scheme for local delivery
