– the Uk’s first award winning dairy CSA. We are a small community-supported dairy farm based on Oakbrook farm. We produce delicious, fresh and local raw milk, yoghurt and kefir for our members and selected shops. We farm to regenerate soils using a method of farming that revolves around biology, life and the sun; to positively impact our soils, animals, people and the nature that surround us.
Oakbrook Farm Eggs/Ellie’s Eggs
Delicious fresh eggs from a small flock of happy free range chickens. They live in a mobile coop which is moved around the farm, giving them fresh pasture around once a week. The sward benefits from both fertilisation by the chickens and aeration from their scratching around.
has developed a honey-bee garden at Oakbrook Farm since 2018. Open days have regularly attracted 20 visitors or more in 2019. The Bee-Observatory is a wholistic research project, developing alternative bee-keeping practice and offering public education. Our various and purpose build observation hives allow for direct observation of honey-bees, for all ages and without protective clothing. Check out bee-observatory.org for more info and open days in 2020.
