Where old-fashioned farming and new ideas meet
Somerset has always had farming at its core, and nestled here in the county's agricultural heartland it's a tradition we're proud to continue.

We farm organically, sustainably and ethically, combining the best of the ancient with the most cutting-edge of the modern to produce the very best food you can eat.
