Farm to Fork

We have created a one-acre vegetable garden with the help of Ed, our resident gardener. We grow only heritage seeds, producing wonderfully flavourful fruits, salads and vegetables.

A huge polytunnel is tucked away behind our main growing area fulfilling our requirements for herbs, salads and crops which need more warmth and sunlight. I’m planting an edible forest which will give me the real taste of orchard fruits, focusing on heritage varieties.

We’ve worked hard to ensure everything we grow is selected for maximum flavour and minimum impact on the land.  Our permaculture, no-dig approach works in harmony with nature – protecting and enhancing biodiversity, in order to create a sustainable platform to work from. Nothing tastes quite the same as freshly picked produce, and all our dishes harvest the benefit of using the freshest of ingredients.
