About The Three Turnips

We provide affordable and nutrient dense vegetables for the local community year-round following no dig methods with a focus on improving soil biology. 

The vegetables we grow and the way in which they are grown support the environment by creating beetle banks, capturing carbon, improving biodiversity through the hedgerows and wild flora patches, providing local jobs and volunteering opportunities and offering an education platform for schools in the local area. 

We have a pop up shop which is open to the public on Saturdays from 10:00 – 14:00 selling our veg, meat from the farm (certified PFLA), honey, wool, jams and preserves, all from the farm and this is a wonderful opportunity to meet and be a part of our local community.

We love what we do and it’s important that we find someone who shares our ethos.
