Who We Are 

Eastington Farm Shop is owned and run by Hannah Clarke and Ed Spencer. 
 
The Spencer's have been dairy farming the land for generations but saw a new emerging opportunity to help solve some of the challenges we experience in the 21st Century by taking things back to grass roots and using their connections within the local area to help locals access good quality food without reliance on big supermarket chains that put profits first. 
 
They took the plunge to make their dream a reality and opened their doors to the public August 2019. 
 
 
 
 
"We love what we do, and hopefully it shows! 
 
With more than 3 generations of experience in the field, our family know the farming and food industry like the back of our hands. 
 
We've seen first-hand the challenges that modern life has created and the disconnection between farm and table that has occurred as a result of mass production and industrialisation. As a result, health problems are rising quicker than ever. That's why we decided to create Eastington Farm Shop to help reconnect farmers with the table, so consumers can appreciate their food in a meaningful way. 
 
We believe that when there's better transparency about where your food comes from, you're able to make better decisions for you, your family and loved ones, and ultimately the planet."

Our Farming Ethos 

We farm in a way that will have a positive impact on the environment and wildlife around our land. Doing things such as planting cover crops, zero till drilling, diversifying our crop rotation and the species of plants we grow together. We are also planting lots of new trees and hedges and restoring old ponds. The land we farm around Eastington all goes into producing crops to feed the cows to produce the best milk. 
 
We grow a range of feeds including grass, maize, wheat, lucerne and clover. In the last few years Ed has moved the farm towards more regenerative farming practices by reducing chemicals and eliminating synthetic fertilizer use. 

Regenerative Farming 

On our farm we try and farm with nature as much as possible, always thinking what implications each decision we make has for the environment and the wildlife on the farm. 
We leave our sunflowers that don’t get picked to set seed and over winter these provide a useful source of seeds for the birds as well as some cover from the rain and wind. This has supported an increase in the wild pheasant numbers around the farm, as well as smaller song birds. 
 
Over the last few years, we have also planted many native trees on the farm, some on field edges as well as some in awkward field corners that will create small pockets of trees in areas that are not very economical with today’s larger equipment. This also provides good hunting habitat for barn owls as the longer un touched grass around the trees is perfect for mice. 
We also manage the hedges on the farm with wildlife in mind not cutting them until the berries and fruit are off the bushes except on fields that are newly planted and will be too soft to travel on over winter. We try and leave a section of hedge on the farm to grow up over a few years to then be coppiced or laid so we have different heights and maturity stages of hedges. 
 
To try and encourage a few visitors we have also installed different size owl boxes around the farm for little owls and barn owls although we already have resident little owls and see the barn owls from time to time. 
 
We have lots of plans over the next few years to improve on all this including more trees, bird seed plots, wildflower and pollinator strips so keep your eyes peeled when out and about walking. All these things are done at our own expense so by supporting us you are also supporting the environment and wildlife around you.
