Lower Hewood Farm

Lower Hewood Farm is a 45 acre, certified organic small-holding located on the borders of Dorset, Devon and Somerset, producing meat, vegetables and preserves for sale locally. We run an ongoing programme of arts-related events, projects and residencies in parallel with the everyday functioning of the farm.

Activities take place in a range of buildings including a farmhouse, sheds, converted barns and farm buildings, as well as the surrounding land, a portion of which is a Site of Nature Conservation Interest.

The Survival Library, a project developed by Standart Thinking contains a range of material including artist books, agricultural manuals, novels and volumes on psychology.

Anyone is welcome to visit the farm. Please email info@lowerhewoodfarm.org to arrange a time.
