Let’s get building

At the heart of our farm…

we find our members and our farmers, but where can we meet, learn together and keep warm?

Farmer Sam recently gathered a team of farm members to get work going on our own straw-bale building. 

The aim is to provide indoor and outdoor space for farm-related social and learning events and shelter for the farm team.

Our current barn at Hawkwood is nice for the cows but does not meet these other needs well.  Improving facilities for storing, collecting and buying produce might also be something a new building could do.

The team is working together on all aspects of design, fundraising and how we expect to deliver the build and operate the building.

The names pumpkin and squash are quite interchangeable, but we tend to refer to the Halloween-type squashes as pumpkins and all of the others as winter squashes.
