Jamie’s Farm, Bath

Welcome to the farm

Hill House Farm, found just outside of Bath, was the first permanent home of Jamie’s Farm and houses the hub of our operations. Close to the home of founders Jamie and Tish Feilden, where pilot groups were initially run, we are lucky enough to enjoy fantastic relations with local farmers, organisations and other individuals.

On site, we have built up a wonderful range of livestock. All of them are nurtured by visiting young people, including our prize-winning Aberdeen Angus cows and our gorgeous Suffolk ewes lambing in January and March. Visiting schools can be caught chopping wood to feed our biomass boiler, from which all our energy comes, or picking delicious organic vegetables in our garden. In summer we make the most of our timber-framed outdoor kitchen, and children get the chance to swim in the Bye Brook river to cool off after a country walk.

Meet the team

Jamie’s Farm Bath is different to our other farms as it is also home to our HQ team. In the attic of the Welcome Barn, you will find our cosy office where the team work hard to run the operational aspects of the charity. This includes fundraising, finance, maintenance, impact and HR to support all our farms.
