Tuppenny Barn is a one-hectare organic smallholding with an eco-built education facility that works with the local community to raise awareness and provide practical learning opportunities about horticulture and sustainability. As a charity we aim to spread the word about the physical and mental health benefits of growing, cooking and eating organic healthy food, with an emphasis on sustainability and conservation.
We strive to educate children about where food comes from, the nutritional benefits of eating fresh fruit and vegetables and the knowledge and skills to 'grow your own' and prepare and cook healthy fresh meals. As well as advocating spending more time outdoors learning about countryside skills, we teach children to treat the environment with care, and respect the natural world.
The education centre also becomes our shop, every Thursday and Friday, where we sell the organic fruit and vegetables that we grow on the smallholding. It is also a venue for regular events and workshops for adults, including music concerts, art exhibitions and Wedding Receptions. Everything we do is not-for-profit and all funds raised go to the Tuppenny Barn Education Charity No: 1172846.

We look forward to welcoming you soon...
