Who are we?

Martin is a second generation tenant farmer. He inherited the farm tenancy from his father in 2011, after his dad served the same land for forty years. 

Jessa is an experienced project manager and has been working on the farm since early 2019.

What are we doing?

We have a ten acre site on the farm which we are turning into our little slice of Eden on the south coast. We have started to grow seasonal produce ethically and sustainably and have been delivering it within 15 miles of the farm. We have rescued commercial hens from slaughter and these girls supply us with amazing, tasty, fresh eggs while naturally fertilising the soil to regenerate it. Nature’s ploughs are pigs and we have a small herd to help improve the soil and create a wonderful basis to grow root vegetables and salad crops.

Why are we doing it?

We think there is another way. We want to go back to the way our grandparents did it. We want to reduce plastic and food waste and cut down on food miles. By delivering it ourselves, we will have one vehicle doing many journeys rather than many vehicles doing one journey.
