Tamarisk Farm is a long established mixed organic farm situated on the beautiful coast of West Dorset behind the Chesil Beach.
The family were amongst the early members of the Soil Association and have grown wholesome food to organic standards since 1960.
We grow a variety of organic produce for sale directly to customers.
We now open the "Farm shop" twice a week. The shop is open on Tuesday afternoons, between 4:00 and 6:30, and on Friday mornings, between 8:30 and 11:00. We are also happy to open at any other arranged time.
The family has farmed here since 1960, starting then with the organic market garden and evolving to the present form. The market garden is now about 6 acres of fruit and vegetable in the centre of the village. We have about 130 acres in arable rotation of which about one half is in corn in any one year. The rest of the land is in long term pasture or scrub and other semi natural habitats. Grazing this land we have a flock of Dorset Down cross sheep, a herd of North Devon "Ruby Red" cattle and horses and ponies for work and pleasure. There is also holiday accommodation and some basic chalets for short term workers. Tamarisk Farm supports two families, occasional casual workers and "volunteers". We sell meat (beef, lamb, mutton & hogget), vegetables and wholemeal flour (wheat and rye) in our farm shop; finished and store cattle, finished and store lambs and cereals
