Green River Farm
Some years ago, the owners of some land in Groombridge approached Tablehurst to seek guidance on how they could convert their land to sustainable farming practices. A collaboration soon began in which Tablehurst made use of this land to run a portion of our sheep herd. Over time, the landowners gradually took on elements of the farming work, while Tablehurst continued to provide support with heavy machinery, field management and the like. Eventually, the landowners employed a biodynamic farmer (who, as it happened, had learned his trade at Tablehurst) and he now farms the sheep at Green River. Tablehurst continues to rear its own sheep flock, but we now also take young lambs from Green River and finish them at Tablehurst for sale through our shop, so the collaboration continues.
