The Regather Farm
Since early 2018 we have been busy developing a 15-acre site on the edge of Sheffield in the beautiful Moss Valley.
We're establishing an organic market garden, orchard, polytunnels, beehives and an agroforestry project.

We want to be part of a sustainable food system and help transforming local food by making more local produce available to the people of Sheffield and our new farm is at the heart of that.
Regather Fruit & Veg Box Scheme
The produce from the farm will be sold through our Veg Box scheme.
Regather believes everyone should be able to afford decent food that supports local producers and doesn’t mess up the environment. The Regather fruit & veg box scheme delivers the best local, seasonal, organic produce direct to homes across Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Organic farming aims to manage the land in a way that works in harmony with nature, building healthy soils and using minimal ecologically harmful practices such as pesticide, herbicide and chemical fertiliser use.
We have chosen to certify our land with the Soil Association, the UK’s largest certification body.
The hub of the farm, one acre of market garden growing vegetables for the Regather Veg Box. Polytunnels provide covered cropping for winter salads and summer favourites like tomatoes and cucumbers. Flowers and wild corners are great for pollinators and pest predators.
A mix of fruit trees and fruit bushes plus 25 cider apple trees. Special varieties include Yorkshire’s most famous variety the Ribston Pippin, the distinctive Ashmeads Kernal and Dabineet and Michelin for cider.
Agroforestry is a land management approach with multiple benefits. Planting trees on farms can give farmers healthier soil and higher yields – not to mention creating vital homes for wildlife. We are planning to develop our own Agroforestry system at the Regather Farm. Click here to find out more.
