Wishing you a happy New Year

A big thank you to all our members, customers, suppliers, staff, board members and volunteers. Your support this year has, as always, been invaluable.

Let's take a quick look at just a few of the things we've been up to this year...

An episode of BBC Radio 4′s On Your Farm was dedicated entirely to The Community Farm. If you didn't hear it at the time it really is worth a listen.
