Freeman Bio-dynamic Garden

Freeman Bio-dynamic Garden was established in April 2014 at High Riggs in Stannington. The 9 acre site consists of a 3 acre market garden, a 3 acre mixed woodland and a 3 acre meadow. It has been set up as a social enterprise to provide learning opportunities for Freeman College students and fresh vegetables for the Freeman College kitchens, the Fusion Café, the local community and for our vegetable box scheme.
As well as learning to grow vegetables, students learn green woodwork and cook using the clay oven. We also have space for the development of other land based workshops.
Our aim is to enable the students to reimagine their potential through experiencing meaningfull relationships with the soil, plants, animals and people. By buying our vegetables you contribute to this striving.
We sell produce from Freeman Bio-dynamic Garden and Clervaux Eco Farm. Both sites are part of the Ruskin Mill Trust and all produce is grown using bio-dynamic/organic methods. We top this up with produce from trusted suppliers who grow bio-dynamically and/or organically.
