5 A Day Farm – who we are, what we do, and where we are.
We are brand new to farming and running a business off of it, however we are not new to growing fruit and vegetables. Our aim is to provide a fresh food service in the area of Carrickfergus.
Our plan is simple for now, we’re just setting up! Join us as we take on the adventure of setting up a farming business, unscheduled videos will be released when progress has been made on the farm, we want to share everything as honestly as possible, even when we fail…
Bio-diversity, permaculture and mutually beneficial are all things that we hold dear and have taken it upon us personally to grow food from land that we have nurtured by hand, using no chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides we want to ensure the healthiest food for your family and ours.
in 2020 and 2021 we don’t have plans to sell any food but instead learn what and how things grow in this new earth, as any gardener will tell you, different soils grow different foods! No matter how good the land there is always work to be done to make it better. Not only will we take this time to learn the land but we will be installing perennial foods such as fruit trees, fruit bushes, asparagus, artichokes and mushrooms etc, these things take time to establish so they will only be available when ready.
We don’t want to reveal any plans at the moment as they don’t really exist, we like to take a flexible approach and react to things when necessary.
Look out for our videos on YouTube:
We regret to announce that 5 a day farm won’t be starting for a while, sadly the ground we were prospecting turned out to be unsuitable for our needs.
In preparation for the farm we had created many propagated cuttings which we will now be selling to raise funds for land in the future. Please look forward to announcements on exactly what we will be selling soon.
