Local Food Training Grant

A big “thank you” to Suffolk ACRE Local Foods who have generously given The Oak Tree Farm a grant of £181 for our training plans… CSA members will enjoy a WIld Food Harvest Skillshare on 11th May, and a Preserving the Harvest Skillshare 12th September where we’ll share our knowledge and experience in these key skills for living well with the seasons. Both these events are open to CSA members only, and are free of charge.

We will also be running a Nose to Tail Cookery Course, open to all, with a special rate for CSA members on how to make delicious meals from all the parts of our livestock, not just the bits you see shrink-wrapped in the supermarket! Check back here on The Oak Tree website for more details soon!
