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.

November 10th

After good crops of fruit and veg, we are now into November and still taking home produce –

this week spring onions, lettuce, peppers, carrots, brussels sprouts, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach, chard, leeks and parsnips.

We normally grow shorter varieties of carrots. The one pictured here has really swelled out.

Thunder and rain

Well, thunder and torrential rain were forecast. Rain is so needed and what did we have?Two brief, light showers…

There were only five of us but we got quite a lot done and a lot harvested.

It was great to see bees pollinating, especially as I’ve seen so few this year. Wasps, too many!

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.
