Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmer and consumer in which the responsibilities, risks and rewards of farming are shared.
Farmers receive a more stable, secure income, closer connection with their community and consumers benefit by eating healthy local food, feeling more connected to the land where their food is grown and have opportunities to learning new skills.
Woodhouse tries to sell most of its fruit and vegetables through a CSA arrangement with members of the community, be it a weekly or fortnightly share which for a small extra cost can be delivered. We do arrange monthly work days and would like members to attend atleast 3 days a year, activities include onion planting, potato harvesting, apple pressing and will also include cake and refreshments or a bring and share lunch.

Woodhouse is home to a small herd of Irish Moile Cows a native breed of Ireland that fell out of favor with the introduction of continental breed and with currently less than 750 breeding heifers in existance one to watch. Rare Breed Grass Fed Beef is now back in stock at the farm with a selection of steaks, joints both roasting and slow cooking plus diced and miced beef. Our beef is raised without the addition of unnessesary antibiotics and only eat grass and waste vegetables from the walled garden.
The walled garden now hosts a wealth of exotic and traditional fruit trees against the south, west and north facing walls, the centre of the garden is given over to a formal four bed design with walk ways and futher scuptured trees bridge the gap between a productive field and a beautiful oasis to enjoy.

New for this year we have inca berries which should be ready shortly, the year as a whole has been a bit disappointing with frost catching the plums, damsons and gages and figs taking longer to ripen. We hope to have a better year next year.
From the ever changing selection of jams, chutneys and pickles produced on site to the fresh homemade cakes and scones served with a pot of tea, coffee or squash in our new cafe. We like to offer a seasonal twist with everything being made here at the farm from our own produce.
The farm is home to approximately 150 chickens who have all been raised for eggs, they enjoy a free range life protected in the walled garden and eggs are usually available for sale. ( We do not us artificial light to increase production through the winter months so there can be some seasonal variations in production.)
