Millen Farm is a community small-scale farm originally managed by farmer Arran from Powerful Owl Permaculture. Arran transformed a ‘blank canvas’ site around 6 years ago into productive plots for showcasing small scale urban farming. At the end of 2020, the site was re-invented when Arran was joined by Nick and Liam from the Mini Farm Project. The Mini Farm Project is an innovative model of small scale diversified farming that aims to donate half of its produce to the charity Meals on Wheels. In 2023, it is evolving in an exciting new direction. Come along and hear all about it!
Millen Farm Education Centre is still in the early stages of growth, but the infrastructure and plans for the education centre will be sure to inspire and delight learners of all ages. We are excited to introduce a creative element to the Trail this year, with kids and adult art interactive experiences. Watch this space for more info to come!
Millen Farm Hub This is a designated hub for the Trail. This is the place to come if you are looking for market stalls, a coffee van, and of course toilets.
A large picnic area will be available all participants to use, whether it is for eating your home packed lunch or for consuming your pre ordered take away form one of the local cafes.
