Abbey Home Farm is run by Will and Hilary Chester-Master.
They took over the management of the farm from Wills family in 1990 and set about establishing an organic system of farming from day 1.
Both Will and Hilary are totally committed to organic practices and are striving to make Abbey Home Farm a truly sustainable, both environmentally and financially, place.
Will is the general overseer of the land, including the many woods on the farm, and takes many children around the farm on school visits.
Hilary founded and manages the organic farm, the shop cafe, the green room and the vegetable garden.
John Newman has been at the farm since being appointed farm manager in 1992, looking after the daily agricultural management of the farm, (and is the public face of the farm on radio and television!)
The farm, the garden, the shop and the cafe would not run without the other members of the team. There are at present approx 40 people involved, working here in all sorts of capacities, some full time, many part time, from many different backgrounds, but with common links: a passion for local and organic food, high animal welfare, caring for the environment and protecting our wildlife.
