Keveral Farm has been a community since 1973.
We live in a farmhouse, a barn conversion, an extended static caravan, and 3 other static caravans. These, together with our farm buildings, are owned and managed by our housing co-op, One Community.
Members should attend monthly community meetings, and do 2 hours voluntary work per week maintaining and improving the house, buildings and land.
The 25 acres of farmland consists of veg plots, polytunnels, soft fruit, orchard, woodland, pasture and camping, and has been certified organic by the Soil Association for more than 30 years. Our worker’s co-op, Keveral Farmers, oversees the management of the land.
Most members rent areas of the land or buildings to pursue their own projects or commercial activities, which include vegetables, micro-salads, soft fruit, apple juice and cider, woodland management and firewood, and managing a campsite. We have done weekly veg box deliveries to local people since 1997.
We run a two-week Permaculture Design Course every summer. This is held in our Visitor’s Barn, which is also available for events and group visits. We are looking to expand our range of courses, which may include dry stone-walling and seed-saving.
We accept WWOOFers and working visitors by arrangement.
