Our market garden

The First Year – Establishment

We’ve dedicated 12 acres of Hammonds Farm to our market garden. That is a lot, and we won’t be working it all in the first year! To start, we have 20 beds of annuals using Zerodig principles as well as some more Zerodig beds for perennials. We also have 8 plots of min-till and a small polytunnel to help propagate and extend the season (and where we grow our delicious tomatoes and coriander).

Rosie joined the team full time as head grower in early 2022 and has since been joined by Stuart and Athene who support her and make sure she doesn’t go mad speaking to her plants!

Veg bag subscriptions

We have started a small veg bag scheme – a subscription of £15 per week for a bag of 6-8 seasonal, chemical free and delicious vegetables. If you are interested in taking part, please sign up on Ooooby here.
