ABOUT THE FARM HOLDING
The farm has one acre of land with 5 poly-tunnels and a glass lea, where vegetables and herbs are grown. There are also 26 outside raised beds where flowers and shrubs are grown.
Harvest is each Wednesday morning for selling in Westport country markets on Thursday. Chris also saves vegetable and herb seeds and offers them in the market in aid of Western Care.
Chris was born in London and has been growing vegetables and herbs organically for over 30 years. Brid, his wife, teaches pupils with autism in Newport NS. They have three children.
