We are James and Sukamala from Wild Geese Acres. Our produce is grown using no dig growing methods and we follow organic farming principles. We have also re-mineralized the soil here using the dust from crushed volcanic rock. This creates a more robust plant that is packed with macro and micro nutrients. This contributes to human health by delivering bio-available minerals and nutrients and a flavour often found missing in regular shop bought vegetables. We have transformed the land here from a scraggy sheep field to a productive small scale farm packed with wildlife and plants. We produce tasty and nutritious seasonal vegetables, salads, herbs and flowers.
Wild Geese Acres is a 6 acre off-grid small holding on the Somerset/Devon border. Over 90% of our domestic and business energy comes from on-site solar and wind power. We farm a one acre market garden, a one acre apple orchard and a two acre newly planted native species woodland. These trees and the rest of the open pasture form an agro-forestry project for our growing herd of Kune Kune pigs.
We are dedicated to working with nature and as tenants of the Ecological Land Coop have made a commitment to sustainable agriculture. We have transformed a neglected field into a bio-diverse smallholding fit for future generations and responsive to the ongoing climate emergency.
