The farm has been going for less than a year, but Hannah, who runs it along with a band of volunteers, has done an amazing job of transforming two acres of former arable field into a thriving veggie plot, focussing on regenerating the soil after years of conventional agricultural use. The owners of the main farm (mainly arable and cattle, as far as I'm aware) are really supportive too, which is brilliant.
Yummy. About an acre of the site is in active use at the moment (which is amazing when you think it was still a corner of an arable field this time last year), with another acre around the perimeter that's currently being left as a wildlife corridor, whilst the focus is on regenerating the initial acre. Long term plans include tree / hedge planting too I think. I'm sure there's loads more in store for the farm...building soil, building communities, improving the area for wildlife and of course growing delicious organic food. A second polytunnel is in the process of being put up too (of course, I'm still not jealous, ahem.). I'll try and take some more pics next time, there's loads more to see.
Thanks for reading this week. I'm linking in with Harvest Monday, hosted again by Dave at Our Happy Acres. Big thanks to Michelle at From Seed to Table, who hosted throughout January.
