Who we are
Gaz and I (Laurenne) run and live on the farm, with our 4 children, Lissy, Caitlyn, Marley and Rory. We bought the farm 4 years ago with the hope of creating a small scale market garden, where we could grow our own, naturally without using harmful chemicals / pesticides or synthetic fertilisers – healthy for our bodies, and for the planet!
We also have a wonderful team of volunteers who share in the work and the harvests with us.
What we do
We grow a selection of salads, fruit, veg, flowers, plants and herbs for ourselves and the individuals who help us work the land, and sell on our roadside farm stand and in local outlets.
We practice no-dig, regenerative agriculture and are super interested in permaculture – we have planted over 40 fruit and nut trees here to create an edible ‘food forest’ and look forward to being able to share more with our community as we establish and grow!

How to buy from us
You can purchase through the shop tab on our website.
We aren’t an open farm, but have a roadside farm stand with an honesty box (you can also pay by Paypal). There is pull in space / on our drive.
The farm stand is open seasonally, early in the year from spring flowers / plant sales, then regularly when our produce is ready (usually early June – November times). It is usually stocked weekends at a minimum (please follow our Facebook page for the latest updates when we are stocked).
Local Loop Clowne
You can also buy most of our products, alongside eco friendly products from lots of other local makers, through Local Loop Clowne’s weekly Friday Loop (collection on Portland Street, Clowne).
Fruit & Veg Shops
A selection of our veg is also usually available seasonally at Harthill Fruit and Veg, and Morefruita Barn and Farm Shop.
