20th August 2021
BDA AGM Event: Biodynamic Biodiversity – Presentations from the day
22nd October 2021

Resolutely Natural
Heckfield Place is a Georgian family home, lovingly restored from its classic origins and rewoven into 400 acres of secluded Hampshire landscape. It is a living place, centred on sustainability with the ambition of restoring its soil and preserving its land for guests to enjoy for years to come.

Food and Drink:
Each day, produce is picked fresh from the biodynamic Market Garden and organic Home Farm and served in restaurants Marle and Hearth, under the stewardship of culinary director Skye Gyngell. It is a country haven with a progressive vision.

Calling All Curious Minds...
The Assembly at Heckfield Place cultivates a space to unearth, reconnect and rediscover. It is a diverse programme built around core themes of the estate, hosted across 400 acres – from the Assembly and Screening Room to the Home Farm, Glass House, woodlands and lake. Guests leave with a new skill or thought that will stay with them long past their visit.

Heckfield Home Farm’s produce sale – Every first and third Saturday of the month 9am – 2pm

From just-picked biodynamic fruits and vegetables to organic eggs and organic Guernsey milk, artisan breads, cordials, jams, as well as Village Maid’s award-winning cheeses, there will also be an array of cut flowers and plants from our Market Garden.
There will be new produce to try each week as the seasons change — the first of the summer tomatoes in July and a rainbow of winter squash varieties come October.
There will also be coffee and hot drinks, pastries, ice cream and toasted sandwiches available to enjoy from our kiosk throughout the day as well as the opportunity to meet our growers and learn more about our biodynamic practices. As we can only accommodate a limited number of people on the farm at one time, we have implemented a ticketing system. Tickets are £2 including VAT. Book your ticket here.

Event: The art of preservation by Heckfield chefs: Sunday, 18 September at 9.30am

Are you curious about pickling, how to create yogurt or make knockout kimchi? Want to turn every last morsel of a produce glut into beautiful pickles and preserves?
Taste, feel and see how to master ingenious recipes with our Development Chef Dor Harel and the Heckfield Team using from ingredients from our orchard, Market Garden and estate. And take a pot or two home with you after the demo. 
‘Preserving is our way of capturing the past season, while also enabling us to appreciate both the abundance and scarcity of the present,’ Dor explains. ‘It teaches us to be grateful to those who have gone before us, who in times of hardship, found ways to overcome their challenges through imagination and creativity.’ Dor started his culinary career in Israel, moved to England to study cooking in Tante Marie culinary arts school before working back in Israel, Australia and Amsterdam before working at Skye Gyngell’s Spring restaurant.  He uses preserving as a way to reconnect with artisanal methods of the past and to ensure not an ounce of precious produce from our biodynamic Market Garden goes to waste  FFI and to book click here
