Home Farm is a small horticultural farm of 14 acres situated in the Stour Valley, Kent at Crundale between Ashford and Canterbury.
Our fields slope up to the bottom slopes of the North Downs, giving us light, chalky soils. These free draining soils, blessed by the warmer climate of the South East, produce vegetables of great taste and quality. As well as our Home Farm, we also rent a Victorian Walled Garden at Olantigh near Wye and fields below Wye Crown, including an old 'Spartan' orchard.
Ripple Farm has been certified Organic since 1989 and holds an Organic Symbol from the Soil Association. The farm itself is essentially a market garden producing a wide range of vegetables, salad, herbs and some soft fruit.
With this produce, Ripple Farm Organics runs a local box scheme and supports Wye and Whitstable Farmers' Markets in Kent and Stoke Newington farmers Market, London. We also supply specialist organic/wholefood shops in London, Growing Communities Box Scheme, London and a variety of shops, cafes and Pubs in Kent.
The farm is run by Martin Mackey, who has academic qualifications in Sustainable Agriculture, and many years of practical experience in organic growing.
Our produce has travelled approximately 0.18 km's (as the crow flies) to get to you.
