ABBEY HOME FARM

Background:

Will and Hilary Chester-Master are the managing partners in a family partnership which decided to convert Abbey Home Farm from conventional to organic production in 1991. John Newman has been farm manager since Autumn 1992 and the planned conversion to an organic system has been implemented with the assistance of the Organic Advisory Service. The 650 hectare farm is registered with the Soil Association Symbol Scheme and hosts regular educational visits and farm walks. The farm was awarded The Organic Food Awards Producer Of The Year 1999 and The Organic Farm Shop was Organic Retailer Of The Year 2000. Both the farm and the shop were Highly Commended in the 2001 Organic Food Awards. The farm shop was awarded a national Environmental Award for the second time in January 2012. In 2017 the farm shop was a finalist in the BBC Food and Farming Awards.
