FARMING, GARDENING, CONSERVATION...FOR A BETTER WAY OF LIFE
Brimwood Farm is a small, 40-acre plot in beautiful Suffolk, UK. Having been left largely unused for over two decades, Geoff and Saad Huda-Wakeling are regenerating the land to become a working small farm that places a strong priority upon self-sufficiency, conservation and community. Farming approaches include No-Dig Gardening, Pasture-based Livestock, Agroforestry and Regenerative Agriculture. These work alongside, and often in perfect synchronicity, with conservation projects that include the Wildflower Meadow, Woodland Expansion, British Bluebell Grove, Pond Restoration, Biodiversity Studies and the Owl Nesting Box Campaign to name a few. In addition, broader, longer-term goals include supporting not only farm growth, but local economic and community growth too via education, employment and events.
Much of the work conducted is showcased via Brimwood Farm's YouTube channel, so please join us there. Check out the 'About' page to find out more and discover ways to support us, and feel free to browse the articles and see what you, too, can grow and rear in your own space.
We keep Japanese (Coturnix Quail) for meat and eggs. Great little characters, very tame and with eggs that taste so sweet!
Conservation at Brimwood Farm includes sowing a wildflower meadow, planing a bluebell grove, dredging ponds, putting up owl boxes and conducting biodiversity studies.
We grow a variety of vegetables for sale at Farmers' Markets and the farmgate including crunchy radishes, sweet salads, juicy tomatoes and more.
We keep a variety of chickens including silkies, Ixworth, Polands and Barbu d'Anvers. Freshly laid eggs are available, as are a limited number of chicks and pullets.
Our tiny nursery also sells a few plants, including starter vegetable seedlings and ornamentals.
