Business Details

45 Years of organic Agriculture

Tamarisk Farm is a mixed organic farm of about 600 acres of high pH heavy clay facing southwest and sloping down to the sea immediately behind the Chesil Beach in Lyme Bay. The family has farmed here since 1960, starting then with the organic market garden and evolving to the present form. The market garden is now about 6 acres of fruit and vegetable in the centre of the village. We have about 130 acres in arable rotation of which about one half is in corn in any one year. The rest of the land is in long term pasture or scrub and other semi natural habitats. Grazing this land we have a flock of Dorset Down cross sheep, a herd of North Devon "Ruby Red" cattle and horses and ponies for work and pleasure. There is also holiday accommodation and some basic chalets for short term workers. Tamarisk Farm supports two families, occasional casual workers and "volunteers". We sell meat (beef, lamb, mutton & hogget), vegetables and wholemeal flour (wheat and rye) in our farm shop; finished and store cattle, finished and store lambs and cereals.
