Over thirty-five years ago, we began to turn our family’s farmland over to sustainable, organic farming, first in Staffordshire and then in the Cotswolds.
What began as a simple passion for real food and a desire to feed our children better has grown into Daylesford as we know it today, one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK.
WHAT WE DO
We’ve been farming organically for over 35 years, with a simple passion for real food. Straight from our farm to your fork.
WHAT DRIVES US
At Daylesford, we’re dedicated to growing, producing and cooking seasonal, organic food. It must be fresh, and full of flavour, packed with the many vitamins and minerals that come from natural food, picked and eaten at its peak.
As part of a mission to reverse the industrialisation of our food and the pollution of the land that nurtures it, we practise organic, sustainable farming with far fewer pesticides and herbicides on our crops. We do not use artificial growth promoters and hormones on our animals, and maintain the highest welfare standards.
All Daylesford products have full organic certification from the Soil Association.
Daylesford is a community with food at its heart. From our home on our 2350-acre organic farm set in the idyllic Cotswolds, a day at The Cookery School is a must for anyone who shares our passion for real food.
From classic courses such as Seasonal Organic Suppers and Seasonal Dinner Party, to specialised courses like Artisan Bread Making, Nose to Tail Butchery or Ferments to Eat and Drink, you’ll find practical and imaginative courses to suit all interests.
We offer a wide range of full day, half day and evening courses – perfect for any type of cook whether you’re a beginner looking to learn new skills or a confident cook looking for new ideas. All of our dishes are created using seasonal, organic ingredients from our FARM AND MARKET GARDEN, the source of all of our inspiration.
