Hardwick is an organic, sustainably managed family run Estate covering 900 acres in the Chiltern hills in South Oxfordshire. The Estate comprises several farming and educational enterprises, 430 acres of mixed forestry, and is home to a small community in our rented properties. The Estate has been organically managed since 1975. We aspire to be a thriving rural community founded on ecological living and farming practices, as well as artisan crafts and skills.
We run a local firewood and timber business, hire out a riverside campsite for educational and family events, and lease plots of land for grazing or smallholding activities. Public footpaths and bridleways criss cross the scenic woodland. The Estate is also home to a stock free organic market garden, a forest school and education centre, a hemp growing cooperative, a biomass and solar energy company, a veg growers cooperative, a livery business, yoga and wellbeing retreats and a 300 acre organic farm. For more details on these exciting businesses please see our Enterprises page. Please do get in touch with inquiries, or if you are interested in any of our current opportunities.
