Just before half term, we had 15 brilliant volunteers from Barclays working on Farfield Farm repairing raised beds, building paths, recovering our rhubarb area and improving a couple of community plots. They worked SO hard and we are very grateful for their wonderful support. The bank generously provided £500 of investment and, thanks to their efforts, Farfield Farm goes from strength to strength. Apparently, they hope to be back next year which is fantastic news!

We have had another very successful year on the farm, as these photographs testify. The children have worked hard and a special well done to staff members such as Ms Howells, Ms Kirk-Dooley, Mrs Elam, Brian and Karl.

Many thanks to Lindsay and her colleagues from Communisis for their hard work on Tuesday as they moved tonnes of top soil and play bark on the farm and grounds, filling up lots of new raised beds ready for planting this summer.

Once again, Barclays has ‘come up trumps’ for Farfield Farm having brought a team of volunteers (and a grant) for a day of labouring. They repaired rotten raised beds, transformed the fruit cage and built a dozen new raised beds to the left of the top polytunnel. It was a magnificent effort! Many, many thanks!

Years 5 and 6 carried on visiting the farm in the winter. They spent time planning seed orders and crop rotation. There wasn’t much to harvest but these Y5 children did harvest some Jerusalem Artichokes. Do you know their nickname?

Some seeds like it hot whilst others tolerate some colder temperatures and will still germinate. This document can help us to decide if it is the right time to plant certain seeds:
