About Us

John, Joyce and Noel Eveleigh moved to Washingpool Farm in the 1970’s where they started growing fruit and vegetables.

The farm consists of land situated on the end of the sand belt that runs from Yeovil, 20 miles away, through to Bridport. This means the soil is free draining and ideal for growing vegetables as it can be worked most of the year. The farming system is virtually sustainable with both animals and crops playing a vital role.

 

 

For ten years the produces grown was originally sold as farm gate sales. After that trading began in Bridport high street, selling our own produce supplemented with that from other local farms. Continued success moved the shop back to the farm in August 2000. The growth of the shop has matched that of the family with three generations now living ‘on the farm’.

The farm is eighty acres with lakes, a stream and the river Brit taking up most of the north and eastern valley. On the higher ground we grow potatoes, salad crops, soft fruit, cabbages, beans, squashes and root vegetables. Grass is grown to feed our pedigree herd of Red Devon cattle and pigs.

 

Washingpool Farm is now run by three generations.

Gillian and Alan along with their two children Bryony and Simon look after the Farm Shop and Restaurant with help from Vicky (Simon's wife).  Bryony's husband, Jeremy, manages the livestock and various children help out in the shop and on the farm.
