We are pleased to continue supporting local food growers with our bags of well-rotted manure, compost, seeds, fruit and vegetable plants!
To limit any contact and allow for social distancing, we ask for payments to be made in advance online. The produce listed below will then be made available for collection on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12pm-12:30pm at our Rotherhithe Street gate. Stock is selling out fast, but we’re usually updating this page on Wednesdays and Fridays so best to check back then.
We’ve been busy making up Salad Sowing Kits. They are suitable for new or experienced gardeners to grow cut and come again salad from seed, either on a windowsill indoors or outside. The kits include a small propagator lid and seed tray, sieved and sterilised Farm compost, label, Farm branded pencil and seeds with hand-written instructions. Growing food at home made easy!
We also have a selection of Franchi seeds available if you’d like to grow your own vegetable plants from seed.
We offer a range of small herbs in 9cm square pots that include Lavender, French Lavender, Sage, Rosemary, Curry Plant and more.
Our tomato plants are now on sale! We’ve spoken to a lot of locals who have access to a small outside space and are getting into food growing, but don’t have plant pots, canes and trowels etc to plant on small tomato pots – so we’ve done the messy work for you! We’re selling tomato plant packs which include a St Pierre, Gardener’s Delight, Oxheart or Marmande tomato plant grown from seed here on the Farm and planted into a 10 litre pot with a small basil plant (pot mix includes a rotted manure based and our farm-made compost). The pack will also include a 4ft bamboo cane and string to support your plant as it grows, saucer and a label.
For those of you that already have pots or space in a garden, we also sell tomato plants that are established and ready to flower but are still in small 9cm square pots and will need replanting at home in the next few days.
Our bags of rotted manure are approx 20-25 litres and weight varies depending on the moisture content. We reuse plastic feed bags and tie up, but we’d recommend lining your car/bag for transporting just in case of leaks! Please note the manure contains a mix of all the animals waste and straw that has rotted in our muck heaps for six months, however the straw often takes longer to rot down. It’s fine to dig the straw and rotted manure into your growing beds, it will continue to rot and is all full of nutrients for growing.
Our potting compost is made on site and is sterilised, so it’s great for seed sowing. Bags are approx 13 litres and weigh around 8 kilos. We reuse paper feed bags and line with bin bags so there should be minimal spillage!
£1.50 – £8.50
Please don’t order if you can’t make the collection slot. We need to limit the time we spend on collections, so we can focus on animal care and linking with our vulnerable participants stuck at home!
We’re not able to man the Farm’s phone at present. If you have any queries please email our Farm Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org and she will respond as soon as possible.
