We are Chestnuts Farm, a Family Smallholding in the North Wessex Downs AONB.

We are Neil, Jackie, Harriet and Sasha (and importantly, Morse the beagador and Nan the working collie)

We are tenant farmers, with the Crown Estate as landlords, in the downland village of Bishops Cannings, and very small farmers at that - ten acres is the size of our holding.

In 2020 in the shadow of Covid-19 we've launched a Community Supported Agriculture project, to get our community involved in supporting those growing their food, and to promote food resilience on a very local scale.

We produce vegetable boxes for members / shareholders and we aim to produce fresh, organic food for vulnerable groups such as homeless. recently housed, and those struggling to make ends meet.

Please get in touch via the contact form if you'd like to join, or if you'd just like to know more about what we do.

On the smallholding, as well as the CSA we have our pedigree flock of sheep, Rowan Oxford Downs, as well as goats, chickens, and a naughty Welsh pony called Diva.
