About FarmED

FarmED is the new Centre for Farming and Food Education based at Honeydale Farm in the Cotswolds.

 

Our mission is to accelerate the transition towards regenerative farming and sustainable food systems by providing space and opportunity for inspirational education, innovative research, practitioner led knowledge exchange events and personal development.

 

The farm is a diverse mix of low input arable and temporary grass, and organic permanent pasture. Our trial plots include sainfoin, herbal ley, barley, heritage wheat, wild bird seed and various cover crops. The grassland is managed by mob grazed sheep.

Other features include a natural flood management scheme, heritage orchard, tree planting, wildflower margins and an apiary. Our kitchen garden is run as a Community Supported Agriculture scheme. 

 

Coming soon at the farm...cattle grazing, agroforestry and composting projects and a whole farm Countryside Stewardship Scheme.

 

At the heart of FarmED are two impressive eco-buildings – one providing space for conferences, lectures, workshops and special events; and the other a farm to fork kitchen and food space, and a regenerative business incubator.

 

Our audience includes local communities, schools, universities, researchers, farmers, new entrants, foodies, businesses, environmental groups and policy makers.
