The Trill Farm Garden
Kate and Ashley have been at Trill running the vegetable garden since 2010.
Ash studied horticulture at Reading University and after going down the route of historical garden design and working in ornamental gardens, he realised that he would rather grow vegetables!
The garden is about 2.5 acres and includes several large poly-tunnels which house tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, peppers, aubergines and the like in the summer, and is used for salad growing through the winter. We use traditional organic principles such as crop rotation and green manuring. We harvest around two tonnes of salad a year, growing over 80 different varieties of leaf and flowers for the mix.
We have wwoofers, an apprentice from Spring to Autumn and a couple of seasonal workers helping with salad picking.
Most of our produce is sold to local restaurants including our next door neighbours River Cottage HQ and Canteen in Axminster, and the Town Mill Bakery, Millside, Hix Oyster & Fish House and the Alexandra Hotel in Lyme Regis. We have a Saturday stall outside Town Mill Bakery in Lyme Regis from Easter till Autumn.
If you are are coming to Trill we can prepare a bag of fresh seasonal vegetables to take home with you. Minimum orders of £10 - please give us 48 hours notice.
