in the New Forest
Stay at Lightfoot's Farm glamping in a furnished bell tent with its own wood fired hot tub and explore the coast 10 mins to the south, and New Forest five minutes to the north.
Our bell tents sleep up to five, but Orchard pitch includes two tents; or even consider booking the entire field for up to 30 people.
If you would like to enjoy a winter hot tub in a natural environment please get in touch.
New Forest nuts
Tree nuts are an extremely environmentally efficient way to produce protein. Read our blog post about it here.
Until our own orchards are producing we are selling some direct sourced English and Organic nuts from small growers.
Buy sweet nuts in shell, or pre-order for green and wet nuts to receive a rare treat off fresh nutsduring harvest for fresh eating or pickling.

Lightfoot’s is a small family run farm in the New Forest in Hampshire.
The challenge we have set ourselves at Lightfoot's farm is to produce as much food as possible, sustainably, and with our changing climate in mind, whilst enhancing wildlife and providing a space that people can rest, play, and work.
We sell direct to consumers and encourage engagement to increase tracability and accountability and maximise the portion of revenues going back into the production system where quality and sustainability can be improved.
Our backgrounds are in agriculture, community, and international development. We’ve lived and worked in some beautiful countries including Central Asia and the Middle East.
We believe in beautiful, tasty, truly nutritious food.
Vertically farming microgreens is a way to ensure there is sustainably produced food even in dry and hot, or wet and cold periods. Its a way to deliver huge numbers of portions of vegetables from a small space.
Nut trees are a way to produce high quality protein whilst increasing carbon in the landscape which is great for nature. Nut trees improve water management and soil quality, and are twice as efficient at producing protein than pulses in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, and 400 times better than beef.
We do post our produce nationally, but our focus is on local sales where traceability and accountability is at its best - a producer connected directly with their customer.
