The majority of the farm (about six acres) is used to grow vegetables which are certified Organic by the Soil Association.We rotate our crops year by year to avoid build up of pests and disease and to ensure nutrients are taken equally from all parts of the farm. Some of the rotation is sown with clover to fix nitrogen and build fertility for future crops. We also encourage natural predators to help with pest control.
We grow a full range of vegetables from broccoli, beans, and courgettes in the summer to parsnips, cabbages, and celeriac in the winter. We also have two polytunnels which we use for tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers in the summer, salads in the winter and beetroot, carrots and peas in the spring.
