Babbinswood Farm is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Babbinswood Farm

Babbinswood Farm is in North Shropshire, 5 miles from Oswestry. The farm is managed by Barbara, Casha and Adam. In Summer 2017 a small dairy herd was started and we have been producing & selling organic milk, both raw and pasteurised it’s all made here on the farm. Our dairy herd is unique: We allow the calves to stay with their mothers. We like to think we are sharing the milk, as we only milk the cows once a day allowing the calves to have their fair share. We also believe this has a lot of other fabulous benefits for both the cow & her calf. Our farm has been farmed organically since 2002, we are certified with the Soil Association. What does organic mean? We don’t use any pesticides, herbicides on the farm. We care for our soils and life in there. We love trees and the wonderful benefit they bring to the farm. We pride ourselves on high animal welfare standards. In 2022, Joel and Yas joined our farm and started Good Pickings Market Garden, growing organic vegetables for our onsite farm shop and local deliveries. Please come and visit us our farm shop is open 7 days a week from 9.30am - 5pm. Thank you, Barbara, Casha & Adam 😊

Fair prices for farmers and artisan food producers is vital

We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
