Botton is a working village with everyone using their abilities for the benefit of our community. A number of our workshops are also flourishing social enterprises selling produce to the general public
We run three farms and our farmers use organic and biodynamic methods in rearing livestock, producing milk and growing crops. We also grow and process biodynamic seeds. Our high standard of farming has been recognised in the national Organic Food Awards.
Our gardeners grow vegetables and fruit and cultivate a beautiful walled flower garden. We maintain our woodlands for their beauty, environmental value and the timber which we process in our wood yard.
Our food centre produces organic fruit juices and jams; our creamery makes award winning cheese, yoghurt and butter; our bakery produces organic bread and biscuits.
Other workshops include woodwork, weaving, and handicrafts. We also have our own Camphill Press where we print cards for internal use and we also supply a lot of printed materials for external customers.
