FORTY HALL FARM
PRODUCER - ENFIELD
Forty Hall Farm is an organic farm in Enfield. Nestled in the estate of Forty Hall, the farm boasts a market garden, an orchard, a stock of rare breed sheep, pigs and cows. It is also home to London's only organic commercial vineyard.
Manager of the farm, Kate McGeevor exchanged her life in busy Hackney to come and live and work on the farm. "People are often surprised when they visit and realise Forty Hall Farm is a proper working farm. Our location on the edge of the Borough means that our rolling fields can supply Enfield with food that is truly local. We also pride ourselves on being entirely organic so our customers can be sure their food has been produced without harm to the environment and that their meat comes from animals who have been very well cared for."
Kate wholeheartedly celebrates local, sustainable food and she has set up a veg bag scheme with Beth, the Farm's head grower, who oversees the Market Garden. Together they are creating a truly productive farm for the people of Enfield to benefit from.
The farm is open to visitors, except in the winter months and their farm shop, stocking eat and veg from the farm and local crafts is open on Wednesday, Saturdays and Sundays. There is also a calendar of events throughout the year including our own Enfield Food Festival on August Bank Holiday.
