Harvest Roundup

Our regular roundup in the Romford Recorder featured our recent trip to the London Social Farms and Gardens 2023 Harvest Festival. Also, one of our young farmers was interviewed for the Farmers Weekly podcast (skip to 42:13).


On 7th October at 2pm we’ll be holding our Annual General Meeting followed by a barbeque. This is your opportunity to find out about and influence the long-term plans for the farm, to ask questions to our board of trustees and even to get involved as a trustee yourself.


Our November article in the Romford Recorder was about the effects of a pandemic among Britain’s feathered population, you can read more here.
