Sharney Bridge Farm is based in the beautiful West Oxfordshire countryside. It is a new farm; converting agricultural land previously used for grazing cattle into a rich, organic, permaculture farm which works with nature to produce high yields whilst helping the environment.
The farm demonstrates how permaculture can help revitalise the British countryside and provide ample produce to feed society in a sustainable way. Permaculture moves beyond organic and works with nature using methods such as:
- Companion planting (often referred to as guilds)
- Mulching (green manure)
- Rainwater harvesting
Yields per area are higher than conventional farming and wildlife is encouraged to flourish and integrate with cultivated species. Permaculture farming also leaves more nutrients in the soil available to support future growth.
In the summer we offer workshops on growing edible food and creating sustainable technologies.
