Chestnut Brae Farm
Chestnut Brae Farm is 70 idyllic acres of mature organic sweet chestnut forests that were planted biodynamically in 1985, mushroom crops, heirloom vegetables and heritage animals that are all farmed sustainably using regenerative agriculture and holistic management. John and Linda Stanley have a passion about healthy living, healthy food and a healthy planet. They purchased the farm in 2013 with a plan to create a sustainable, organic, self-sufficient farm producing a range of unique chestnut based products using regenerative agriculture to increase soil health. John and Linda travelled to Europe to learn how to farm chestnuts and find out what could be done with these incredible nuts. They expanded the rose and vegetable gardens on the farm, raise heritage animals and heirloom vegetables and herbs for food production and imported a flour mill to mill the chestnuts into their delicious organic gluten free chestnut flour.
