Woodoaks Farm, Hertfordshire
Just outside London near Maple Cross in Hertfordshire, lies Woodoaks Farm, a patchwork of meadows, old orchards and ancient woodlands.
For years it has been part of the community, providing space to enjoy nature and the beautiful countryside: you’d never know the nearby M25 runs directly through the middle when you’re tucked away in one of the woodland walks.
What’s on the farm?
Woodoaks has been a working farm for many years. The current owners came to the farm in 1922, mixing arable and dairy with ‘modern day’ farming techniques.
On the farm today you will find:
• A largely arable farm
• The Teashack for visitor refreshments
• Creative Juices Brewing Company - a microbrewery in the old milking parlour
Our plan for Woodoaks Farm
Now the owner, Sally, has bequeathed Woodoaks to the Soil Association Land Trust, together we are building an exciting vision for its future to achieve four main goals:
1. Reduce the environmental footprint of food production
2. Reverse the declines in wildlife
3. Help people make healthier, less damaging food choices
4. Be more resilient to climate change
You can be part of this vision
We have a chance to transform this farm to support nature and a safe climate.
Our goal is to plant 2,000 metres of hedges on Woodoaks farm. With your support we can lock up carbon, improve soil, provide homes for wildlife and produce more food per hectare by planting thousands of hedges at Woodoaks. And as your hedge grows, it will continue to be a valuable part of the farm for hundreds of years to come.
Will you act now and donate towards buying a hedge on Woodoaks farm?
