Growing with Grace
Organic horticulture almost entirely under 2 acres of glasshouses, with spectacular mature forest garden under glass, and closed-loop systems at heart of ethos.
We have a spectacular forest garden under glass, which we use as an educational and inspirational area, as well as a food production area, and sell the crops. We grow and sell the following from this area: grapes, peaches, nectarines, figs, cherries, apricots, hops, and a variety of herbs including thyme, dill, and sage. We also use permaculture principles across the rest of the site where the main food production is done. We heavily promote biodiversity to help us create a balanced system to reduce pest and disease issues. We minimise outside inputs, buying in no outside fertility or growing medium. We reuse and recycle where possible, using growing techniques such as blocking to reduce our reliance on plastics, and promote healthy transplants.
