Huxhams Farm Project: We are almost there!

Welcome to the Biodynamic Land Trust Website. We are a charitable community benefit society, established to secure land into trust for healthy and sustainable farming and gardening. Let's secure land into trust together, for a working and living countryside. Our current share offer is for the Land at Huxhams, near Dartington.

Lay of the Land: Huxham's Farm Walk and Land Survey

on Wed, 11/19/2014 - 21:43
Farm walk and Land Survey Introduction
 
 
On 27th November at 10.00 am Bob Mehew from the Apricot Centre will be hosting a farm walk at Huxham's Cross Farm. Take a leisurely stroll on the farm. This is also an opportunity to get involved and help us with gathering information about the land. 
 
 
From the Meadowbrook carpark, where we will walk by through Week to the South gate and then all the way through the land finishing at Huxham's Cross at the North edge. 
 
At this point, nothing is certain about what will go where on the farm.

Volunteer Opportunities at Huxhams Cross Farm

My name is Bob Mehew from the Apricot Centre Team, and I will be the volunteer coordinator for the Huxham's Cross Farm project. I very much enjoy showing people around the farm, and getting the type of jobs done that are far better together – potato harvests, weeding, planting out vegetable seedlings and the like. 

 

My work with Bennison Farm, another Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm project in Essex, brought me in to contact with volunteers, coordinating workdays and helping with social events. It is always great to see families at volunteer work and social days.

A fascinating profile of the pioneer biodynamic-organic farmer, the late Alan Brockman, following a form of holistic and sustainable agriculture. Brockman approached biodynamics as agriculture which was "spiritual not wacky". An invaluable watch.
