Rare Breeds Plants & Produce is one of our Life Skills projects on the farm, and offers training opportunities to adults with learning disability.
We sell a wonderful range of flowers, plants, vegetables and fruit along with a selection of crafts. The shop is located next to the admissions area at the main entrance - why not pop along and have a look at the beautiful seasonal plants and vegetables on sale.
COT residents and students love to show our visitors what they've grown. Working in Rare Breeds Plants & Produce helps them to learn specific skills in horticulture, and also develop self-confidence through interaction with our visitors in a relaxed and supportive working environment, assisted by skilled staff and volunteers.
You don't have to pay to go on to the farm to shop at the Rare Breeds Plants & Produce, but it is worth a visit to the planting and growing area on the farm where there are polytunnels, net tunnels, a large greenhouse and nursery beds. These are based near the Hill fort.
