Tuston Farm is situated between Ashperton and Tarrington to the east of Hereford. We are turning an 8 acre ex-arable field into Tuston Market Garden, which produces the freshest, seasonal local and organic vegetables possible. We are hoping that by allowing areas to regenerate and be managed in a less intensive way, we will encourage more diversity and wildlife, while still providing food and an income. We are creating the Market Garden, growing using the No-Dig method and to Organic standards.
Who We Are:
Alice grew up locally at Canon Frome Court, an intentional farming community, where she learnt to care about where food comes from and the different and more sustainable ways we can grow food. After completing an Apprenticeship through the Soil Association Future Growers Scheme at Herefordshire farm Carey Organics and working a couple of seasons at Arkstone Mill Organic Produce the opportunity of Tuston Farm came up and was just too exciting to pass up! Even if it is an enormous challenge.
Dom works as an ecologist by day (and night!) but does loads around the farm too. He is particularly interested in creating a meadow and encouraging wildlife to the farm as well as producing some more unusual crops such as Rosehips.
