Matt came to this place with inspiration, but never having built anything bigger than a compost heap. When Vicky joined him a couple of years later they developed their visions together, with the aid of dozens of kind folk. The buildings that have taken shape here are a testament to the kindness, adventurous spirit and craftmanship of these friends. A particular debt is owed to Meyrick and Charlie (MC-Rustics) whose signature is on every building here.

Many other good people have helped us along the way with machinery, livestock issues, pruning, coppicing…
