Rifleman Cottage is a 6 acre small holding operating to permaculture principles. We aim to be as self sufficient and sustainable as possible.
Rifleman Cottage is a pair of old farm workers cottages with six acres of bramley orchard behind it , close to the market town of Faversham in Kent. We have developed permaculture principles over a period of time and have invested in solar panels, solar voltaic panels, wood burning stoves, WET system to grey water storage and a few more.
we aim to grow as much fruit and vegetables as we can and sell some of the surplus during the summer. We keep pigs and chickens and are looking to start sheep in the future.
We offer bed and breakfast facilities and offer evening meals if required. Most of the food is organic and all sourced locally. We have been able to provide all the food from the garden during the summer months for this.
