OUR STORY

WHO IS HALF ACRE FARM

Half Acre Farm is owned and operated by Sarah and Tom who are passionate about British flowers!

Whilst Sarah is in charge of planting, cutting and arranging the flowers, Tom takes on many of the important infrastructure projects, such as creating and maintaining the flower beds and all heavy lifting!

We have been growing the cut flower business steadily over the past six years, experimenting with what grows well in our local micro-climate and also which blooms provide the best vase life for our customers. Growing the business slowly has also allowed us time to learn how to manage 'pests' in a more environmentally conscious way, using organic growing methods and avoiding the use of harmful chemicals, pesticides and fungicides. Our goal has always been to grow seasonal 'nature friendly' flowers!

Last year we welcomed our first child into the family, affectionately known as 'Seed', whom we hope will share our love and enthusiasm for all things floral!

THE FARM

Half Acre Farm is located in the historic Oxcroft Estate Land Settlement nestled between Bolsover market town and the villages of Clowne and Stanfree, Derbyshire.

Our site extends to just over half an acre, with approximately 1/3rd currently given over to cut flowers.

The farm is not generally open to the public, but we do have a produce stand which is stocked with seasonal produce, flowers and eggs available to purchase as and when available.

The best way to keep up to date with what is happening on the farm - including open days and events - is to like and subscribe to our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram.

 

OUR CUSTOMERS

Half Acre Farm welcome local brides and florists in search of fresh, seasonal and environmentally conscious blooms. We offer 'florists' buckets' and 'DIY wedding flower buckets', as well as wholesale prices on our larger crops such as tulips, sunflowers and dahlias.

We also provide a 'made to order' bouquet service for local customers looking for plastic free, environmentally conscious flowers and gifts!
