Cop 26 and The Organic Farm Shop -

A change in the way we eat as a human race has been identified as a key way to reduce the release of Methane and Carbon Dioxide into the Atmosphere, here from the farm and through the shop we cater for this change in diet whether that be through reducing one's meat consumption and buying meat from animals raised in a high welfare setting and using climate friendly techniques or removing meat completely from one's diet, the Horticultural operation and shop provide access to locally produced plant based diet for 12 months of the year.

Short Supply chains the majority of fresh products sold in the shop are produced and processed on site, massively reducing the food miles involved in one's diet.

Biodiversity - Abbey Home Farm has been Organic for thirty years meaning no pesticides have been applied in that time, Insects are the bottom of the food web and key food source for birds and mammals, Insects populations thrive here on the farm allowing the birds and mammals to thrive to.

Educating - Sharing of knowledge amongst adult population and educating the younger generations on how to live and eat more sustainably is critical, here at the farm we are passionate about educating, starting young with the farm nursery, taking school groups for residential visits where they are immersed in the farm environment, training horticultural apprentices in the veg gardens and engaging widely with other farmers to progress sustainable techniques, always looking for ways to reduce the impact of our diet on the planet.
