Huxhams Cross Biodynamic Farm
A community supported Biodynamic Farm and Wellbeing Service in Week, Dartington, Devon.
We aim to create a beautiful 34-acre farm that will produce delicious biodynamic food, vegetables, fruit, beef, eggs and chicken that will supply 100-150 families via a CSA model. The farm would add value to produce – making jams, chutneys, cordials and juices with grade out produce. This will be a learning demonstration farm for Biodynamic methods of food production, permaculture design and Agroforestry, weaving these techniques together to create a productive, sustainable, beautiful and bio-diverse farm. The project would offer a range of courses and events for the local community and to train apprentices. We will welcome children to explore the farm, food and eating. We will have regular celebratory events on the farm, such as Apple Days and Easter Egg hunts as well as work days involving the community. We believe that regular, intimate experiences in nature give a sense of wellbeing to everyone.
We aim to work with local people and organisations as the farm becomes established. We expect the farm to develop in response to local needs and feedback from the land.
