Our Story

FarmED is a new centre for Farming and Food Education, focusing on the crucial link between good food and good farming.


With all the current changes in farming, FarmED provides an inspirational place for groups to share knowledge and debate how to grow good food - good for us and good for the planet.

There are lecture halls and a kitchen and demonstration area. What makes us unique is that these facilities are surrounded by a real farm with:


  • Crop rotation and trial plots

  • Natural flood management

  • Woodland and wildlife habitats

  • Livestock

  • Orchard and apiary


So each event that you - or we - organise at FarmED can include a farm walk, talk and great food.


Honeydale History

When we acquired Honeydale Farm in 2013, we began keeping a blog, recording, month-by-month and year-by-year, the changes we were making, as well as successes and problems. Here are some of the highlights.
