Forest Larder

In January 2020 we acquired a 15 acre site in Willsbridge/Longwell Green BS306EU where we are developing a vineyard and cider/perry orchard. These are two long term projects and in the near term we are continuing with mushroom cultivation, summer & winter squash growing and the sale of various edible plants in fabric pots. Willsbridge Hill is our primary development site going forward and we have started to host plant sales out of our polytunnel here. We have planted a quarter acre of vines so far with four varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Regent & Bacchus. Our plan is to expand the vineyard by half an acre in 2021. Our online shop is now open at forestlarder.com/shop and we are now delivering plants & branded stash to BS postcodes with free collection available from Willsbridge Hill & our home in Redland. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in vineyard development, mushroom cultivation & forest farming. On our website we have an email list for volunteers forestlarder.com/volunteer
