Welcome to the website of Diss Community Farm

Welcome to the website of Diss Community Farm, we are a community group,                  based in and around Diss who have come together to produce food collaboratively in an ethical and sustainable way.

We are always looking for a few more members. See the About us and How to join page for more information.

We have a field in Winfarthing, together with three polytunnels; where we meet to work weekly, including harvesting whatever is ready. Whoever is working that day takes home a box of freshly harvested vegetables. Very little money is involved.

Harvest time

We’re pleased with our yields of onions (red and white), shallots and garlic and yesterday we divided them into 13 shares.

Together with the harvesting of other produce, we definitely needed wheelbarrows to convey all the goodies.

Last day of May 2022

At last, a catch up.

DCF continues to flourish, at the moment producing radishes, spinach, spring onions, rhubarb and herbs with the help of our homemade compost.

We’re looking forward to good crops from seeds sown directly into the plots, whilst others have been started at home and then transplanted to the farm.

There have been a few hiccups; gooseberry sawfly larvae have gorged themselves on some leaves on a gooseberry bush but hopefully they were picked off in time for the fruit to continue growing (see photos), blackfly has appeared on some of the broad bean tops, in spite of having been covered with netting and the Pink Fir Apple potatoes have had to be burnt as they had succumbed to potato blight.
