Home Farm is a real working farm with mud, tractors and plenty of wildlife.
Gert’s family and the rest of her herd still graze in our fields but instead of dairying, we now help rear the young ones for other farmers to milk. This means that Andy gets a bit more of a lie in!
We concentrate on the tons of potatoes and vegetables which supply the farm shop, cafe and farmhouse kitchens with our lovely home-grown produce from our fields at Ruett Farm and Sunnyside.
As you would expect from a real farm, there are plenty of animals and we have high numbers of wildlife in the surrounding fields and woodland.
We have planted woodlands, and miles of hedges as well as creating ponds and installing Barn Owl and Kestrel boxes to really encourage the wildlife to flourish. There’s plenty of marked footpaths all around the farm, so have a wander and see what we’ve done.
