Home Ground

Home is a family farm in Essex, England growing arable crops where we grow wheat, barley, borage and beans that provide food for people and animals as well as Christmas trees that we sell from The Christmas Tree Barn in December.

The first record of our farm appears in the Domesday Book, where it’s listed as Slamondesheia, the name thought to originate from the Old English meaning enclosure of the sloe tree hill. The hedgerows around the farm still contain plenty of sloe bearing blackthorn along with a rich mixture of other plants and trees that provide a good habitat for wildlife and a ready supply of wild food for us.

You can discover more about the farm on the Slamseys website.
