About Abbey Home Farm

Abbey Home Farm is run by Will and Hilary Chester-Master. They took over the management of the farm from Wills family in 1990 and set about establishing an organic system of farming from day 1. Both Will and Hilary are totally committed to organic practices and are striving to make Abbey Home Farm a truly sustainable, both environmentally and financially, place. The farm, the garden, the shop and the cafe would not run without the other members of the team. There are at present approx 40 people involved, working here in all sorts of capacities, some full time, many part time, from many different backgrounds, but with common links: a passion for local and organic food, high animal welfare, caring for the environment and protecting our wildlife.
