The Farm

Honeydale Farm is a 107 acre (43ha) demonstration farm in the Cotswolds. It is the home of FarmED.

 

The farm is a diverse mix of low input arable, temporary grass, and organic permanent pasture. 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, woodland, wildflower margins, an apiary and a 2 acre kitchen garden/Community Supported Agriculture scheme. 

 

We hope to introduce grazing cattle, more agroforestry, a composting project and a whole farm Countryside Stewardship Scheme in 2020/21.
