Hedge Quarters : Pop Up Tea Rooms

The farm’s Hedge Quarters were created in early 2017 and function as a rural HQ for the farm’s planning meetings, alongside rural writing and seasonal celebrations of wild foods and rural living. They are also linked to the farm and Spring Festival’s Wildwood Residencies and Hedge Hut Residencies – recent recipients of these in 2017 / 18 include Synnove Fredericks, Jelly Green and Tessa Newcomb.

The Hedge Quarters host autumn poetry projects in association with the Suffolk Poetry Society, Poetry in Aldeburgh and [in 2015/16] Cill Rialaig in Kerry, Eire. Poets who have read their work in Hedge Quarters include Ken Mitchell, Paddy Bushe, Hugh Thomson and leaders + participants in Suffolk Poetry Society workshops.

‘During ! Cornucopia ! the farm’s Hedge Quarters are open daily to visitors from 10am - 6pm offering teas, coffee, herb teas, cakes and pastries. Service at weekends; self-service on weekdays.’
