Selling produce directly from our farm to the local community has always been part of Nancarrow’s history. From the early 20th century, when Philippa would take her homemade butter on horse and cart to sell in Truro, to the 1990s when Pete co-founded Truro Farmer’s Market which continues to thrive today. Close customer relationships have been crucial in giving our small farm a sense of purpose. Opening up to the public in 2014 enabled us to share our produce and ethos with many more people.

Through our events, we have always wanted to ensure visitors would enjoy produce from the farm and leave with a better understanding of how it has been produced. As we enter our second decade of events our Farm Feasts, Suppers and Sunday lunches will continue and grow, and we are aiming to ensure more people of all ages have an opportunity to visit and get involved at Nancarrow.

Educational Visits

For several years we have established strong links with a few local schools who regularly visit the farm. We are delighted that from January 2024 we can offer this opportunity more widely and invite schools, early years settings and community groups to join us for an educational farm visit!

Visits are Free for schools and will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays on prearranged dates throughout the year.
