Fellows Farm —IP13 7DF Fellows Farm, part of London’s artisan bakery e5 bakehouse, is a small organic farm with 17 acres of agroforestry: 8 lanes of trees at 24 m intervals. The trees are a wide mix of top fruit, nut and native broad leaf. Planted in late winter 2020 they’ve just made it through the year despite drought and voracious deer. The field is currently planted with a heritage wheat. www.fellowsfarm.co.uk/fellows/agroforestry
