What are we ?
We are a friendly commnunity farm based in Highbridge Hampshire.
Everybody likes to have fresh food, ideally produced locally in a healthy and sustainable way. However, the price of organic produce can put it out of reach. We deal with this by providing an opportunity for farm community members to buy food, grown locally, using organic principles wherever possible, at around a third of retail prices. The difference? We do the work ourselves, as a co-operative.
Anybody can partcipate as long as they join our group at a cost of £10 a year and contribute a minimum of 10hours to the farm each month. If you are new to vegetable and fruit growing, no problem, we can show you what to do!
'You' can be an individual, couple, or a family - it is good to give children the opportunity to understand how food is grown and they are very welcome down at the farm. We operate as a number of teams and you will find a warm welcome from whichever you join. You will get fresh air, exercise and also a sense of wellbeing from helping to create a more sustainable future.
