Our partners

Here at Hartley Farm we are joined by some brilliant local businesses that all contribute to life here at the farm.

Grown Green

Kate Collyns joined us at the end of 2010. Kate has brought with her a huge amount of experience and knowledge in food production and horticulture after working as an Organic Apprentice at Purton House in Wiltshire since the beginning of October 2008.

After finishing her apprenticeship she started up her own market garden here at the farm and after not even a year we are starting to see the fruits of her labour.

All of the produce grown by Kate on the farm is sold through our farm shop.

Kate writes her own blog that keeps us all posted with life as market gardener.

Not So Secret Garden

Not so secret garden is a blend of both a cutting garden and a wild garden which was established in Spring 2014. Founders Grace and Bex are both trained florists who love the West Country and are passionate about using British flowers. They are friends and neighbours who share a love and excitement of all things that grow. After many an evening of sharing conversation, plant cuttings and glasses of gin over the garden fence, it was inevitable that they would work together to channel enthusiasm into the project.

‘We’re using our experience and understanding of the gardening and floristry trade to grow a wonderful mix of plants for everyone to enjoy.’   Grace Farrimond

The Oven

Nathan and Angie fired up their sourdough bakery in the autumn of 2014.

After years of training and working in some of the best craft bakeries around Europe their dream was to settle somewhere and start their own bakery.

We were thrilled when they asked us if they could join us at Hartley Farm! Their bread is all based around their own sourdough culture, created with surplus fruit from the farm.

They specialise in just a few loaves and you can find their entire range in our farm shop from Tuesday to Saturday fresh from the oven.

Willy Good Ales!

Family brewers, Willy Good Ale! started brewing as a hobby at home. After finding out they could brew some really unique real ales they set about trying to find a home for their new venture.

The guys now do all their brewing in their microbrewery at the Farm using the finest ingredients. Our farm shop is stocked with their three amazing ales.

What chief brewer Will says about his brews:

“We have combined traditional American recipes with English and Belgian to produce a unique taste. Our aim is to use only local produce, especially products grown at Hartley Farm.”

Robert Dark – resident beekeeper

Robert first established his hives here at Hartley Farm last year. Our first harvest was very successful and we were able to bottle nearly 100 jars. The only problem was that our honey was so tasty they all sold within a few weeks!

All the hives are established in the naturally growing hedgerows with plenty of wild flowers for the bees to pollinate. We have doubled the number of hives we now have and our next harvest is due later in the year so watch this space!

Easy José Coffee

José Melim heads up the Easy José Coffee team, a speciality coffee company based here on the farm. You can taste their excellent seasonal espresso coffee at both Hartley Farm and Neston Farm cafés, or buy coffee from the farm shops to take home.

After taking the title of South West Barista Champion (UKBC 2010), Jose set up easy josé coffee to supply quality and quirky independents with ethically-sourced, Championship-standard coffee. In 2014 he qualified as one of an elite group of Authorized SCAE Trainers, allowing him to teach the Coffee Diploma System.
