mariongaze2018 today picked our fantastic 2021 organic squashes from between tree lines 38 and 39 in our agroforestry (with help from amanda_at_wakelyns_). Once they've dried off in the greenhouse they'll be ready for hodmedods for sale and for wakelynsbakery bakery to use in delicious cooking for people staying at or visiting Wakelyns a course or event (details in links via our bio). Henrietta's squash squash is a particular Wakelyns treat. #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #organic #agroforestry #suffolk #suffolklife #agritourism #stayonafarm #squash

Such a privilege to have hosted the first ever Oxford Real Farming Conference oxfordrealfarmingconf 'In The Field' at Wakelyns this week. 60 delegates joined in with a range of great speakers to learn about #agroforestry matters, fueled by delicious food from wakelynsbakery (mostly from produce grown here at Wakelyns including by realveg_csa). It was great to meet and share ideas with such an inspirational and committed group of people. We are sure it won't be the last ORFCITF event! #agroforestry #agroecology #RegenerativeFarming #organic #climatechange #trees #suffolk #suffolklife

'Field to Loaf' with Henrietta from wakelynsbakery and helenfholmes (assisted by Nick!) this weekend was a great success. Harvesting, preparing and baking a range of grains grown in the #organic #agroforestry alleys here at Wakelyns using traditional techniques, and all in a day! A real privilege and pleasure for Wakelyns to host this special event, and a great learning experience for everyone who came along. Definitely a course we will repeat! #Suffolk #suffolklife #regenerativefarming #sourdough
