Woodhouse is a traditional small farm created in 1808 from the walled garden, cherry orchard (a seven acre field which had wild cherry trees in it) and other small scraps of land which had once been part of the grand Fisherwick Estate.
Though no longer seen in comercial terms as a farm Woodhouse is home to a small herd of Irish Moiled Cattle, Gloucester Old Spot and Black Pigs and 150 chickens for eggs. Once again fruit and vegetables are grown in the 3.5 acre walled garden, produce is sold through a farm shop and people are encouraged to join the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project which has been offering vegetable shares since 2011.
The farm is open every Friday or Saturday 11-4, to buy farm produce or have a cup of tea/coffee and homemade cake. Don’t forget to say hello to the animals or have a walk around the walled garden
