The 100 acre farm is beautifully situated above Monkstone Beach, on a coastal peninsular forming a special corner of the of the PCNP. Surrounded by pastures, woodland, walking trails and with incredible views the farm has been home to the Reed family since the 1930’s. In recent years the philosophy of the farm has changed and is now developing a whole farm system based on the principles of permaculture. Moving towards a sustainable, ecologically sound system with greater symbiosis between its elements. There is particular focus on grassland reversion and soil improvement, lowering nitrogen levels and expanding the diversity within the pastures on the farm.
Home to a herd of suckler cattle, flocks of sheep, pigs, poultry , some horticulture, a fledgling orchard and much more besides.
There is a young energetic team who are all working hard towards the farms future and we encourage you to take a walk around or ask the team for an update as to whats been going on.
The farm has the added charm of a little shop and while the farms own produce is available the shelves are additionally filled with quality produce from numerous local suppliers which we are quite proud to have sourced and support. Also available from the farm are a range of things that include: breeding stock, poultry, hay, silage, charcoal, wood, kindling and fantastic compost….so don’t be afraid to ask.
Using simple and sustainable methods we are developing a farm that will continue to flourish for many years to come.
