Lightfoot’s is a small family run farm in the New Forest in Hampshire.
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. But we're now putting down roots in the New Forest and growing something ourselves in a traceable, short supply chain where we can connect with our customers. We believe in beautiful, tasty, truly nutritious food.
Although our super market shelves are stocked with produce from huge farms people globally have been mainly fed by smallholders (usually women), and with very few inputs. Even 'poor' agricultural land can feed people very well when properly cared for. These smaller systems are deeply integrated in community and culture. We are enjoying being a small farm that might have become an unproductive residence, but that is instead contributing nutritions food to nearby communities. Feel welcome to engage with us about how you like to grow, eat, and live, so that we can be part of a more sustainable, alternative economy.
