Purton House Organics is a family-run mixed organic farm of 70 hectares outside Swindon and we’ve been growing vegetables and produce beef since the last century. Our farm was born out of the love for excellent quality food, produced in a way that works with nature and creates biodiversity.
Over 20 years ago, while agricultural innovations pushed farmers towards more intensive systems, we decided to turn organic to fit with our genuine love for tasty and healthy food. We wanted to supply veg to pursue our organic ideal and keep producing delicious food. After more than 25 years of farming, our passion for amazing flavours is still there, and we are all proud of the veg, fruit, eggs and meat that we deliver to your door.
We’re proud that our farm has held organic status since 1997. One of our farmers, Rowie Meers, is dedicated to the organic way of life and obsessed with healthy eating, especially unprocessed and raw foods. She is a passionate advocate of ethical farming, sustainability and respect for nature – everything we do at Purton House puts the environment and the animals first.
The real bosses here are the chickens, who ride the tractors and pretty much rule the roost. While the hens hitchhike, Rowie and her sheepdog Loopy take a walk around the farm to check on the vegetables – including the nine polytunnels in which we grow heat-loving aubergines, melons and oriental greens. Staffed by our daughters, nephews, nieces and friends, Purton House is a true family venture – and workers who aren’t related are treated just like they are! Lunch is served to all workers, and anyone idly wandering into the kitchen would find it impossible to tell who was family and who wasn’t.
