Fresh Farm Produce

AS AT THURSDAY 27 JULY 2017

OPEN TODAY for picking.STRAWBERRIES for the next few days will be in shorter supply whilst our next lot ripens. However, lower expectations and a good rummage should reward! RASPBERRIES: Still plenty to go around. BLUEBERRIES need another few days to ripen up again. BLACKCURRANTS: only a few left. CHERRIES and GOOSEBERRIES: We look forward to more again next year.....  POTATOES: Our own, home-grown and freshly-dug salad potatoes (Charlotte and Nicola) are in our Shop, just waiting to be created into a delicious Summer potato salad, or just boiled and served with a naughty blob of butter, perhaps a few snipped chives... Or, if you fancy, sauteed potatoes, as they do not collapse on cooking!

Welcome to Wash Farm

Here at Wash farm we offer a back-to-nature experience for young and old, as well as the opportunity to taste that fresh-from-the fields sensation.The farm is not a large, intensive operation supplying the supermarkets, but a small family farm selling direct to the public and offering good, old-fashioned personal service. So plan a trip out to our part of North Essex. Apart from ourselves there are plenty of local attractions:  Always a hit with the younger children, Colne Valley Railways (2.5 Miles) and Boydells Dairy Farm (6.5 Miles).   The picturesque and historic villages of Castle Hedingham (including Hedingham Castle), Finchingfield, Bardfield, Thaxted and Saffron Walden are just a stone’s throw away from the farm. For the Intrepid Explorers, there is Marks Hall (8 Miles).  A bit further afield is Constable Country with Flatford Mill (27 Miles) as a major point of interest. We are happy to recommend The Square and Compasses (17 Miles), genuine supporters of good quality local produce and value for money.  (If you stop off at Wash farm first you’ll still have enough money in your pocket for the rest of the day!)
 

Fresh Quality Produce

At Wash Farm we have a very basic approach: No Frills. Freshness. Quality. Good Value for Money. If we aren’t happy with it on our table we won’t sell it. Situated on the A1017, 1 mile from Halstead, Essex, on the outskirts of Sible Hedingham village, Wash Farm stretches down to the banks of the River Colne. Our fertile loamy soils are well suited to the growing of quality Asparagus,Strawberries, Raspberries, Cherries, Gooseberries and Blackcurrants.  We sell all our  produce from the seasonal Farm Shop and Pick-Your-Own site from mid/late April through to early August.
