Mark Stay,3 Somerton Road,  North Aston, Oxon, OX25 6HP

Farm Background: We rent land from North Aston Farms (850 acres of organic grassland for beef and sheep plus a separate micro dairy enterprise). We grow most vegetables and some culinary herbs. Marketing is diverse, but mainly through a flexible box scheme. We have 1300m2 of polytunnel and 120m2 glasshouse where we raise all our own transplants. We operate a no dig system in our main multispan tunnel. For more information, please visit www.northastonorganics.co.uk

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.

Hedge-Blog: Looking for love...

Alex Firman: Well, our hedgehog is certainly out of hibernation now thanks to the warm (and sometimes wet) June weather, although sadly I don’t have the photos to prove it - apparently our little hedgehog is a wee bit camera shy. Although hibernation is long past, I will still be putting out food and water for our hedgehog who will be low on energy after their long sleep. I’m sure anything that makes foraging that bit easier will be appreciated.
