Home Farm is at the heart of everything we do at Heckfield Place. Each day, guided by the biodynamic calendar, it provides fresh vegetables, fruits, honey and flowers for the House. The farm is our responsibility for today, and our legacy for tomorrow.

Home Farm is a thriving natural environment for guests to be inspired by and engage with. Originally established as part of the estate in the mid-19th century, it was an exemplar of the self-sustaining relationship between land and house – a relationship that we are steadily and carefully re-establishing. 

We encourage guests to visit Home Farm during their stay, with our team of growers and farmers always on hand to answer questions about their work, the importance of biodynamic growing, and to see the seasonal produce that guides our daily menus.

Nurturing everything from lettuces, soft fruits, brassicas, squash and herbs to stunning scented flowers grown for the House, the biodynamic Market Garden is a central part of Home Farm, and is where much of our produce is lovingly grown. It also includes our nursery where we propagate ancient trees for future generations, and is the only biodynamic tree nursery in the UK. 

Home Farm


Home Farm is home to a variety of livestock including a herd of Guernsey cows, various sheep, pigs, and free-range chickens, as well as 500-tree orchard that includes apples, pears, damsons and more. 

In 2020, we opened our own dairy which generates wholesome milk and cream to be used to make butter and yoghurts for the House. It's also used to create cheese with our local cheesemaker, Village Maid.
