Brockman’s Farm Produce

Alexandra Palace, Stepney, Oval, and Herne Hill markets.

Brockman's Farm produce is run by one of the oldest organic and Bio-Dynamic Farms in the UK.
Perry Court Farm at Garlinge Green near Canterbury (not be confused with similar named farms) begun in 1953 where previous generations of the family started converting it to organic methods.

The Kent based farm is now managed by Patrick Brockman, a third generation farmer who has been farming using organic methods since his very first day. Patrick says “that after 6 decades of organic management our soil is as fertile and free of agro chemicals as is possible”.

They specialise in the production and supply of Organic, Heritage and Wild varieties of vegetables, salads, fruits, herbs and additional select produce with crops grown over approximately 45 acres of Fields, Polytunnels and Glass House. They focus heavily on harvesting our leaf and salad crops within 24 hours of them arriving at market, thereby maintaining one of the shortest supply chains and the freshest produce.

They also work closely on cropping and marketing for a number of small partner farms who share the same values as us in terms of quality local organic produce supplied direct to consumers. This enables a viable outlet for the partner farms and supplies them with crops not suited to our own soils.

Their market staff also share our passion for Organic and Bio-Dynamic produce and are an incredibly knowledgeable and well informed bunch who love talking vegetables!
