The land is not ours, it belongs to the future and we should leave it in good heart

Abbey Home Farm is run by Will and Hilary Chester-Master.

They took over the management of the farm from Wills family in 1990 and set about establishing an organic system of farming from day 1.

Both Will and Hilary are totally committed to organic practices and are striving to make Abbey Home Farm a truly sustainable, both environmentally and financially, place.

Will is the general overseer of the land, including the many woods on the farm, and takes many children around the farm on school visits.

Hilary founded and manages the organic farm, the shop cafe, the green room and the vegetable garden.
