Description
Our 15th century 'Old Cobblers House' is located in the busy central Suffolk village of Debenham where the river Deben begins. There are three acres of garden with a vegetable plot, greenhouse, a growing orchard, some raggedy woodland, pond and some chickens.

We are also part of a Co-operative that husbands fifteen old breed pigs and five steers.

Oh yes, we also keep honey bees.

The garden provides vegetables, honey and eggs and the livestock management is shared with others.

There will be logging, fencing, tree care, planting, harvesting, grafting and general maintenance. There are several pressing projects including fruit trees, pond, fencing, expanding veg plot and production, hedge-planting later in the year.

Pam is a music teacher and I am a restorer.
