Church Farm covers 175 acres to the south of Ardeley (between Stevenage and Buntingford). Here you will find mixed farming, small fields and intimate diversity of enterprises. Our ambition is to have a farm that produces maximum variety of food, with 50% less fossil fuels from farm to fork. We want to enhance the environment and build community, to treat the land, wildlife and animals as they should be treated and grow great food.
