A wonderful place for a wedding if you are looking for something a little different
Who are we...
"The land is not ours, it belongs to the future, and we should leave it in good heart." At Abbey Home Farm we are committed to local food, protecting biodiversity, animal welfare and welcoming visitors. The farm is 100% organic.
A lovely place for both your ceremony and your reception. A great choice of places to choose from, including the green oak room, the outside terrace arbour, the verandah of the cafe, the little garden shed or, for the wild at heart, our open fronted hut in the magical glade, far from civilisation.
Then, a blessing at the stone circle or in the woods, local organic food, a large green oak venue to eat and dance in. The perfect place if you are looking for a truly organic wedding reception with really seasonal local food, a relaxed and informal atmosphere and friendly staff.
Wedding reception parties of up to 180 guests can be held here. The main space known as the Green Room can easily hold up to 120 people for a wedding meal and dancing. If the weather is fine there is also a large outside terrace with a lovely pastoral view of the vegetable garden and the chickens.
As we have organic certification in our farm, shop and cafe we only offer an organic package, with nothing brought in from outside. We supply everything from the cake to the flowers or hedgerow plants or berries, to the drink and the food which will not suit everybody, but is great for those looking for a completely organic day all in one.
For the carbon footprint conscious you will feel at home here as we strive to lower and footprint and live more lightly on the earth every day.
WOODCHIP BOILER fed from the farm sustainably coppiced woods or other local woodland is the only heating source for the whole building.
It also provides all the hot water for the kitchens.
SOLAR THERMAL tubes also feed into the hot water system.
PAINTS all soy bean based eco friendly paints, inside and out.
LIGHTING all low energy
GREEN OAK building using oak from the farm woodland.
WOODBURNER uses only firewood from sustainably coppiced woodland on the farm.
FOOD all cooked on farm with a very high percentage of the ingredients from the farm itself, in the late summer and autumn can be as much as 90% of a meal. (rice, nuts, chocolate, tea and coffee are the main delicious culprits!)
WATER from the bore hole just behind the cafe
PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR PANELS providing some of the electricity for the shop and cafe
SIMPLE ACCOMODATION OFF GRID available on the farm. Choose from a hut, greenfield camping, a single yurt, a shepherds hut or the 4 yurt camp.
