An inside peek at Daylesford Organic Farm, Oxfordshire
After a six month programme of Brewin Dolphin Secret Garden events around the country, Rosy Hardy completed the final one of the year with much gusto and enthusiasm.
This was Rosy’s first visit to Daylesford Organic Farm in Oxfordshire, one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK, which farms, grows, produces and sells food according to sustainable principles, and in harmony with the environment.
However, she already knew quite a lot about the organic background to the farm and of Lady Bamford’s involvement with the Chelsea Flower Show, when she designed a show garden in 2008.
She’s a tough lady to impress but the whole Daylesford operation in Rosy’s words, “evoked quality and tradition and the crowd seemed to enjoy my talk. We concluded with a wonderful walk around the market / kitchen garden where I felt particularly at home as I began my horticultural journey growing vegetables”
