Farm Background: We rent land from North Aston Farms (850 acres of organic grassland for beef and sheep plus a separate micro dairy enterprise). We grow most vegetables and some culinary herbs. Marketing is diverse, but mainly through a flexible box scheme. We have 1300m2 of polytunnel and 120m2 glasshouse where we raise all our own transplants. We operate a no dig system in our main multispan tunnel. For more information, please visit www.northastonorganics.co.uk

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.
