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.

My organic hero

Janet Blikmans: Imagine a beautifully sunny day in August, not too hot, a few clouds in the sky, a slight breeze and rolling hills. I arrive on a 100 acre suckler farm in Wiltshire to spend the day with owner Miss Lydia Otter and farm manager Richard Hurford and many more people I meet throughout the day. As well as a small herd of organic Angus sucklers and their offspring (oh and the not so friendly bull Jaguar) there are chickens, donkeys, pigs, goats, dogs and a cat. When I arrive in the morning, like on any average farm, business is in full flow already.
