Situated in the beautiful Dorset countryside not far from the famous Jurassic Coast, Washingpool Farm sits on the end of a sand belt, which runs from Somerset to the sea. Consequently the free draining soil is perfect for growing vegetables, salads and soft fruit.
The dairy herd was replaced in 2001 by a small herd of North Devon beef cattle. Also to be found on the farm are Middle White cross pigs, Polled Dorset cross sheep and some hens. These animals play an important part in enriching the land.
The farm shop (which replaced a small shed!) was completed in April 2000, enlarged in April 2003 and again in June 2006. The main aim is to sell quality produce from local producers and businesses. We believe food should be fresh, tasty and traceable.
