• Social



    As well as our core activities the farm carries out various projects to improve the local environment, enhance community cohesion, and act as a hub of social enterprise.

    Here is a flavour of past and present projects. If you are interested in establishing a project at the farm please drop by the office.


    The Farm has a small roof-top apiary where we teach people how to look after bees and the importance of bees for healthy ecosystems, as well as produce some honey.
