We're looking for someone to join us to help us deliver a new project called The Wheat We Eat! This is an experimental project to sow, grow and eat one hectare of wheat on the farm with the help of the local community. We're looking for someone to work 1 day a week (£15-£20ph) on a self employed basis to help bring in groups to get involved in the project, help to plan the wheat growing and bring in necessary tools and knowledge to complete the project. The project will run from July this year until December 2019 when we finally harvest, mill and bake with the wheat. If you're interested in applying please read the job description attached. Deadline for applications 20th June.
We have some extra plants which we are selling at knock-down prices! Come along anytime to the small polytunnel at Blackhaugh Farm to buy:
- Tomatoes - 2 for £1 or 5 for £2
- French green beans - 2 for £1 or whole tray for £5
- Red Russian kale - 5 for £1
You can also volunteer in exchange for some plants!
Call 07737 030 560 if you're having trouble finding them!
Remember this? It seems like a long time ago, but this winter past was really long and spring was slow to come. As you will have heard from other farmers complaints, everything is a bit behind, and we are (unfortunately) not an exception! Because the soil took ages to warm up and plants getting into the ground a bit late, we won't be starting sales until mid June. Just one of the ups and downs of farming. So please be patient; your fresh, healthy, local veg will be coming very soon to your veg box or restaurant.
Thanks! TGC x
We have been preparing the beds in the market garden and getting our first plants in the ground. Here we cleared over-wintering salads from the tunnel after harvesting mizuna and rocket seed, then planted out French beans, which will be ready for your veg box in July!
