Welcome to our farm, Exmoor’s first and only blueberry farm which produced its first harvest in 2009. Located in Exford, the heart of Exmoor, the farm is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is a haven for wildlife such as wild bees, butterflies, red deer, roe deer, kestrels and sparrow hawks. During bumble bee season, we alternate mowing to leave what we call “bumble bee strips” for our friends the bumble bees, which also encourages butterflies, grasshoppers and crickets.
Our blueberries are grown in the cleanest air and water in England enhancing their taste and freshness. Our fields are a pleasure to be in, and we like the richness and wholesomeness of the organic way of farming. We farm as organically as we can, using no nasty insecticides (never!) and only organic slug pellets. We do not yet have organic status but we are in the process of obtaining the official organic ‘stamp’. Diversity in our fields is now so great, the plants are looking healthier than ever – we’ve let nature do the work entirely now for the last 3 years.
Our farm grows a large variety of blueberries including Duke, Patriot, Bluecrop, Toro, Reka, Chandler, Brigitta, Nui and Ozark Blue.
Blueberries are available from sometime (when ripe!) in August until roughly the end of September and members of the public are encouraged to ‘pick your own’. For those who don’t want to do the work we can also arrange for orders to be ready for collection if you telephone us with a little notice. So please, bring your pots, jars, baskets and buckets, and adventure up our bouncy lane for a day spent meandering the peaceful fields and pick yourself the best blueberries you will ever taste!!
