The garden is a very important aspect of life at Stallcombe. We have just under two hectares of certified organic vegetable garden and a 150 tree apple orchard.
Our residents and day placement guests are encouraged to work on and help produce a range of vegetables and fruit through the year for use in our kitchen. We have been certified organic by the Soil Association for nearly 30 years. We also make a considerable amount of produce such as apple juice, sauces and condiments and, together with the surplus vegetables, sell locally. We have a niche chilli growing enterprise as well.
The garden’s extensive grounds also include an art trail, a formal garden and wildlife areas. The garden is designed and run in such a way to enable residents and day placement guest work happily and be at peace with their surroundings.
