About Redhouse Farm Waddingworth
Redhouse Farm at Waddingworth is a mixed farming family business situated in the centre of old Lincolnshire.
Andrew and Edward currently grow winter wheat, spring wheat, spring oats and spring beans, grass leys are also included in the rotation for Edward’s new enterprise, Romney breeding ewes and their young stock.
The grass leys are not only essential for the sheep but offer a good opportunity to improve the soil structure and increase organic matter, this helps to reduce our reliance on chemicals.
Another important part of our farming operation is the various stewardship schemes which we are committed to across the farm. These schemes enable us to grow crops dedicated to supporting a diverse range of wildlife including our own group of wild deer.
This works hand in hand with our resident honey bees who keep Jen busy throughout the year. Jen has to make sure they have enough food to survive the cold winter months, apply pest control methods in the summer, harvest honey which is of course the best job, as well as other beekeeping duties.
Edward is also involved in Farmer Time which is an organisation that brings farming life to the classroom through digital communications. Edward regularly chats to his assigned class from a school in Yorkshire to engage and educate about the journey from farm to fork and also the ever-changing, diverse agricultural industry. The children chat live through FaceTime to discuss ideas, ask questions and gain a ‘real-time’ understanding of the farmer’s daily life.
The Kettle & Cake is our pop up coffee shop which is open during all of our seasonal events providing hot and cold drinks, savouries and yummy cakes which include Alison’s signature Pumpkin Muffin in October. We also sell produce from local suppliers such as handmade cards, gifts, pottery, bakery treats and home decorations to suit the season.
