In the heart of the tranquil Devon countryside, our Farm is a sanctuary of sustainability and harmony, and the proud home of Farm2Fork. Here, amidst the rolling green pastures spread over 221 acres, an abundance of new life and sounds unfold, as the new warmth of the spring sun envelops the farm…

The mornings on the farm start with a symphony of birdsong, as the dawn chorus swells in the hedgerows and trees. The robins, sparrows, and blackbirds are the early risers, their melodies a sweet alarm clock. As the day progresses, the air fills with the cheerful chatter of finches and the arrival of swallows with the occasional call of a pheasant, all contributing to the farm’s vibrant soundscape.

Amongst the sounds our new gosling chicks can be heard, their fluffy innocence a testament to the promise of growth and vitality – now settled into our heated chick brooder barn – they’re enjoying being nurtured with care and love by our attentive team.

In the next few weeks, as the milder weather hopefully graces the land, the goslings will grow into fully-feathered geese, spread their wings and venture out into the pastures where they will roam freely, grazing the lush grass and basking in the warmth of the sun, as our young chickens now do under the watchful eyes of our gentle giant guardian dogs, Nala & Lula.

Walking through the fields, the sights of spring are equally enchanting. The once bare trees now display buds and fresh green leaves, each one a promise of the lush canopy to come. The hedgerows burst into life with wildflowers – dandelions, buttercups, bluebells, and daisies painting the landscape in soft pastels and vivid hues. The bees and butterflies, our diligent pollinators, flit from bloom to bloom, adding a delicate dance to the visual feast.

In the pastures, the new lambs frolic, their playful antics a joyful reminder of the season’s renewal. Their soft bleats mix with the lowing of the cows, creating a harmonious background to our daily routines.

At Dalditch Farm, organic farming is not just a practice – it is a way of life, a philosophy rooted in respect for the land and all its inhabitants. Every blade of grass, every chirp of a chick, every bleat of a lamb is a testament to the interconnectedness of all living beings and the importance of stewardship and sustainability.

So do come and visit us here at Dalditch Farm and be surrounded by the sights and sounds of new life, take a moment to pause and reflect on the beauty of this organic holistic farming journey.
