Ways of growing and selling food differently Year 7 (Margays and Lions) 2012 1
Keelham Farm Shop Keelham farm shop is more than just another shop selling farm products. Keelham have been farming for over three generations and they support over 250 local producers and farmers from Yorkshire. Keelham believe that this helps strengthen the local economy, conserve our local countryside and offer the freshest, tastiest food. All of the produce is organic.By Lucas
Keelham make a difference to the community. They provide jobs for local people, help with community work, offer time to help local charities with fund raising and education focusing on schemes associated with young people, healthy eating and the environment.They make fresh food affordable to everyone with the veg. exchange scheme and provide a weeklyshopper hopper which picks up people in the local communities and taking them to Keelham. They offer lots of fun and educational events to raise awareness of organic farming.By Lucas
Ivy Farm Liverton Hill • Kent was once known as the Garden of England unfortunately a lot of the farming land has been lost to development . • Ivy farm is a fruit farming business which grows strawberries, apples and pears. The farm covers 170 hectares of Kent land. The farmer has recently planted a new apple orchard and built a reservoir to water them.By Aidan
The project• The farmer is planning on building a huge eco house next to the orchard. He is also planning on building an anaerobic digester which will power the house.The digester will take fruit waste from the orchard and their cardboard and paper recycling.It will convert this into biogas which will provide power and heat for the house and compost to be laid back on the orchard as compost that will act as a fertiliser. By Aidan
This is the farm we went to buy raw milk from a few years back. We talked to the farm owner Ann andfound out some history on the farm.The farm was started by her mother in 1950 with a herd of Jersey cows for dairy farming. Over time itbecame a mixed farm later with more cows, pigs, ponies, ducks and arable crops of wheat and barley.The main income though came from the dairy cows, where they sold the milk to a large dairy whoprocessed it and distributed it by milkmen and supermarkets.Unfortunately Ann’s mother died young when Ann was just a teenager and so she had to sell most ofher stock but kept 7 dairy cows. Ann then started to sell unpasteurised cream from her farm stall. Itwas very successful and she soon added raw milk for sale.They were very successful with their unpasteurised products and proudly won the gold medal in 2010at the Great Taste Awards.Ann is very aware of the environment and keeps her farm as clean from chemicals as possible andsafe for her animals. 8
Now that Ann and her husband are getting older, they made the tough decision to stop their dairyherd as so much work is involved in milking the cows 7 days a week, 365 days a year anddecided to raise beef instead.They have a herd of Aberdeen Angus Beef, that they bred and rear on the farm. All the calvesstay with their mothers.The animals are fed a natural diet spending the summer grazing the grass around the farm and inwinter they are in the straw bedded yards, fed on the grass made into hay from the farm as well.I think that Ann and her family have showed how to keep a farm through lots of changes and stillbe aware of the environment and the needs of her herds. 9
All about where Jamie lives and the good things that are being done there• Local farmers grow sugar beet as a winter crop. The sugar beet is not sent for sugar production but sent to a factory to be refined into bio-fuel. There is a large production factory that supplies local authorities and business that use vehicles for low emissions in city centres.• Beccles farmers market is a monthly market held at a hanger on a heliport that sells only locally produced goods. These range from beef pork and lamb products to locally produced beer. Farmers that grow veg provide seasonal varieties. The apple farmer puts apples in storage so that he can provide fruit during the winter months.• Venison and rabbit are provided by farmers for the public to enjoy. Somerleyton estate is over run with rabbits and monkjack deer which can be shot all the year round. Other deer and wild fowl are only shot in a certain season. I LOVE PIGEON PIE!!!!!!!!! 10
All about where Jamie lives and the good things that are being done there• In the summer our fields are full of wheat or rapeseed. Some of these are grown to an organic level. Some fields have had to be left fallow. This has allowed the soil to recover and have man made products disintegrate.• A lot of farms sell there products from there own farms or leave crops bagged up and rely on the honesty of the public to put the money in the tin. 11
Local Farming On The Isle Of WightBy LowanFarmer Jacks is a farm shop located in Arreton Old Village which is almost in the middle of the Isle of Wight. It was started by a group of Island farmers with a genuine passionand love for good food. They take pride in all that they sell and aim to provide the very best in quality and variety of fresh local Isle of Wight produce, that being fruit,vegetables and local meat. This brings Island farmers and food producers together and encourages locals to buy locally produced food and support the local farmers. 12
By Lowan Farmer Jacks organise various events throughout the year for locals and visitors to get involved in, once again supporting local farmers and producers and encouraging community fun. These include pumpkin growing competitions, a giant maize maze to wander through or get lost in, taster evenings, recipes, a sweetcorn fair, Easter egg hunts and decorating competitions. Farmer Jack’s is a place that supports all farming on the Isle of Wight and gets the community13 involved.
Farms Make things better by Sîoned• WORZALS FARM SHOP/Coffee SHOP/Garden Centre• The owners are farmers, they were not making sufficient money from their farm, so three years ago they decided to diversify.• It took a long time to get the business established, as they had to clear land and build the Farm Shop, Coffee Shop and Garden Centre.• The owners wanted to provide fresh quality products from the locality, they wanted to provide a better service for the local community as their are few facilities due to the rural location.• They also grow Pumpkins, Courgettes and Vegetables to supply to local outlets, but use this produce in the farm shop and their coffee shop.• The garden centre is doing so well they are expanding. 14
WORZALS• They sell a variety of food, Meat, Fresh Vegetables, Fruit• They also sell a range of dairy produce and some really nice sweets .• They provide lots of organic produce and speciality foods.• They support green energy and are looking at wind turbines, solar panels as the owner wants to respect the planet.• The owner told me that you have to look at what people need and want, he feels some farmers wont change and that they will get left behind in a changing market, that doesnt stand still.• My family uses Worzals a lot and we love their produce. 15
• I often go with my mum to shop in the Hall Farm shop that is only 5 minutes from us. We often see the owners in the shop , John and Stella Barrie. Most items in the shop are from either their farm or are locally produced .• I asked about how Hall Farm started and John said it has been in his family since 1920. I also did some research on it for this project.• It is a working mixed farm with livestock of lambs, pigs, chickens and cows. They also grow about 6 acres of potatoes that they also sell in the shop along with a variety of herbs and plants. Their chickens are also free range and the eggs are sold in the shop as well.• The lambs and cows are looked after by John and his sons and are butchered by the local butchers and come back to the farm to be sold. This means very few food miles are involved with this farm. 17
• They have now won in 2011 the “Best Farm Shop” award by the Suffolk Food and Drink Awards in 2008 and again in 2011 based on their own produce and the quality of the other items offered in their farm shop• In 2010 they grew even bigger and opened their own café that cooks their meat and vegetables and this has won them the “Best Informal Venue” in 2009. I especially like this café as they are always kind to Brendan and me and give us extra cake and drinks!• I think that they have shown that whilst farming and environmental procedures have progressed so have they to met these changes and be successful too.

There are quiet a lot of cherry orchards in Negrar.When they are ready to be harvested the different farmers take the cherries to a fruit depot, just outside the center of the village.There are also a lot of grape vines in my village, it is a wine region called Valpolicella.Recently some of the local cherry farmers have been digging up their cherry trees and they’ve been planting grape vines to replace them.They’ve been making these changes because they can make more money making wine.Some of the vinyards here are using organic farming methods, without synthetic chemicals or GMO’s, for example, one is called VINO BIO, but the company is called Mont’Albano; and another one that is called Cantina Valpolicella Negrar. 20 By Abigail

Farms make things better by Darnell • In my local area there have been some changes in Hackney city farm. They have come up with a new scheme that supports the local public and helps the environment. They are growing and planting new natural recourses which are helping us with our everyday life style. They are allowing us to come to the farm and collect a box full of vegetables! • Another good point is that my uncle who doesn’t live to far from me has an allotment (a big one) at the back of his garden. He picks his own fruits and vegetables from there and he rents a part of it for his self and his family! • I also have a big market write near my house, it sells allot of fruit and vegetables, over stuff as well mainly fruit and vegetables, but I’m not quite sure where it comes from! But I do have allot of markets and they all sell allot of fruit and vegetables! • I also have another farm near my house and that’s called Kentish town city farm and I know that that farm sells fresh vegetables and fruits that have been grown from the farm and been cleaned ! (Fresh)!!The area I live in just loves farms 28
