Our Farm and Market Garden

We’re on the outskirts of the picturesque heritage market town of Modbury, in the South Hams area of South Devon, nestled in a valley between the spectacular South Devon coast and magical Dartmoor.

Our market garden is around an acre in size and sits within Spindlebrook Farm.

The farm is about 17 acres of diverse habitats, including a network of 6 ponds of varying sizes that feed into Sheepham brook, there's streams running through our meadows, medieval elm hedgebanks, an old leat and a naturally regenerated wet woodland that's designated a County Wildlife Site.

Spindlebrook is an oasis for wildlife. Home to elvers, minnows, snipe, woodcock, a range of owls (Barn owls hunt here!), hawks, stoats, hedgehogs, dragonflies, damselflies, marbled white butterflies (among many others!), frogs, frogs and more frogs, grass snakes, moorhens, many different types of wild waterfowl, orchids, glow worms, lizards & newts, bees, wasps & hornets, bats, great diving beetles, toads, toads and more toads, waxcaps, six spot burnets, hawk moths, oil beetles, wee mammals, big mammals.. oh, we share this wondrous place with too much to list here!

There's lots more photos of the farm & garden in the Gallery.

Leo, Hen and Elliott are old pals who love living close to the land, growing veg & crafting useful things from natural materials. Understanding the intrinsic importance of nature and our place within it, is at the root of what we do.

We teamed up to secure the farm in 2013 and whilst exploring the woods down by the brook one day, we found a beautiful Spindle tree (one of our favourites), and the name

Spindlebrook Farm was born.
