Worton Organic Garden

David and Anneke Blake run Worton Organic Garden, a seven-acre market garden providing the local community with an astonishing diversity of seasonal fresh vegetables, herbs, fruit, eggs and flowers. The Farm Shop and Cafe are open all year round on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

 

David and Anneke were originally employed by Worton Farms in January 2005, to develop the existing two-acre market garden: one ploughed field with two polytunnels. They have gradually worked on the infrastructure, protecting cropping and building a greenhouse. They have also extended the cultivation area to seven acres, four of which produce field crops and fruit, the rest for intensive and protected cropping. From just the two of them working full time, they moved on to employ two full time staff, and now also count four part-timers and one volunteer. They are always open to taking on more volunteers!

 

The Soil Association certifies all of the vegetables, herbs, fruit, flowers and eggs, so the standards are naturally high. According to good organic practice, soil fertility is maintained by means of green manure, compost and liberal amounts of weathered straw. A variety of hens, bantams and guinea fowl are free to range and roost in the wooded borders of the fields, and their droppings provide rich nutrition for the soil.

 

The Cafe is located next to the shop allowing you to try the delicious organic produce in idyllic surroundings. Opening hours are;

 

Friday 10-4pm

Saturday 10-4pm

Sunday 11-4pm
