Village Farm

Clinging to the side of an exposed windswept coastal estuary, the plants and animals of Village Farm are now flourishing thanks to the hard work and dedication of two former BBC film makers. In 2014, Rebecca and her business partner Tim Green took over the tenancy of Village Farm, a seventy-hectare (one hundred and seventy-two-acre) unit in the small coastal village of East Portlemouth. The last three years have been a monumental task turning around a farm that has been overworked and under-loved, but the pair have relished the challenge and brought a beautiful part of the world to life once again.

It’s Rebecca who heads up the path to meet us; she has agreed to our visit despite a heart-breaking event that happened earlier in the year. Tim, the other half of Village Farm tragically lost his life in a tractor accident. As we acknowledge the loss of such an important person, Rebecca says, “I find it desperately sad that now we’re getting recognition for what we are doing, Tim has been taken, but I’d love to show you around and you can see what we’ve been up to.”
