Straw House Appeal

A Biodynamic Farm

Tablehurst Biodynamic Farm grows, produces and sells food that is certified Biodynamic demeter  and Organic by the Biodynamic Association

Come and experience a working Organic and Biodynamic farm. See our animals in the barns and fields, relax in our Cafe Garden with playground, taste fresh coffee, cakes and pies, enjoy seasonal events, beautiful walks over the farm and gardens and buy your groceries, fresh vegetables, meats, eggs, bread, biodynamic wine and dairy in our farm shop.

A Community Farm

The farm is open to everyone and owned by the local community Co-op along with our partner farm Plaw Hatch.

The farm is supported by St Anthony’s Trust, The Biodynamic Land Trust and of course the Co-op community members ( Community Farm Membership Form )

We farm an area of 280ha in and around Forest Row according to biodynamic and organic principles and are passionate about what we are doing. We believe that a farm like ours is not only a place where food is produced but rather a place where people can meet and become part of what has been almost lost: AgriCULTURE.

We not only grow vegetables, fruits and grain, rear cows, sheep, pigs, chicken, ducks, geese and turkeys; We also educate children and adults, train 4 apprentices, provide a fulfilling life and work environment for people with learning disabilities, organise events like farm walks, open days and Barn dances and last but not least process our produce on the farm and offer the freshest and healthiest products in our own Farm Shop and Cafe.

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon onto the Farm!

Our food is not only fresher and tastes better, but by buying home-grown produce you support the local economy and also reduce the energy needed to transport your food. ALL OUR PRODUCE IS CERTIFIED ORGANIC OR BIODYNAMIC. We grow our produce to the highest standards and people travel from far away to buy our award winning meats.
