Our first post of 2015… And look how cute our new arrivals are… And here’s Nigel ploughing ahead despite the grey clouds!
2014 was a great year!
- We sold approximately 200kgs of veg though our popular Crop Share Scheme and to local cafes/restaurants (such as Noa Bakehouse).
- We had Open Days and Open Afternoons which saw approximately 500 people visit The Farm.
- We had 5 days of corporate volunteers helping out – along with our regular volunteers, an approximate total of 1000 hours of volunteers!
- The Harvest Moon Festival raised approximately £1400!
- And loads more…!!
We are busy planning and organising for 2015 to make sure its bigger and better than last year… so watch this space…
Ever thought about composting your household and garden waste and never got round to it?
As part of their “No Waste in Braddan” initiative, Braddan Parish Commissioners are running a composting workshop in conjunction with us in April. Space are limited, and book your space through the Commissioners.

Join us on Saturday 27th September for a cracking evening of manx hospitality here at The Community Farm.
We’ll be holding our every own Manx Harvest Moon Festival – and we hope you can join us!
Located at our very own Wallberry Farm, the evening promises to be a very manx affair. We’ve got local manx Ceilidh band Calor gas performing throughout the night, as well as manx dancers to get you in the swing of things! We’ll have a succulent hog roast to keep your bellies full, and we’d like to welcome you all to bring your own tipple-whatever that may be!
We’ll hold a mhelliah too, stuffed full of manx produce up for grabs.
The lovely Dot Tilbury will be compere for the evening, and will be sure to entertain the crowd.
Don’t worry about parking at the farm- we’ll be picking everyone up from The Sea Terminal at 7pm, and dropping you back later on – for free!
Tickets for this evening of entertainment are just £20, call us today on 676076 to reserve your ticket!
