Welcome to Woodoaks Farm

Woodoaks Farm lies just to the west of London at Maple Cross in Hertfordshire. It extends to just over 300 acres and includes arable and pastureland and around 75 acres of semi-natural woodland.

The farm has been in the Findlay Family since the 1920’s and in November 2020 Sally Findlay donated Woodoaks to the Soil Association Land Trust to ensure it will be farmed sustainably into the future; producing good food, improving wildlife and continuing to welcome people.

As the next custodians of the farm, we will transition to organic and become a showcase for a robust and regenerative system that will support a climate friendly future with plenty of biodiversity and a vibrant and dynamic sustainable food hub.
