Tey Brook Organic Farm is a 400 acre mixed farm of livestock and cropping situated 6 miles south west of Colchester, in the village of Great Tey at the confluence of the Roman River and the Tey Brook.
The farm benefits from the rich alluvial soil of the river valley which is naturally high in organic matter.
The farm is not only host to livestock, vegetables and wildlife but we also have 7 listed buildings which include a 15th century farmhouse, a granary, wagon lodge and large thatched barn which forms part of a medieval hamlet.
The Colchester Archaeological Trust has previously excavated a Bronze Age burial site amongst other ancient remains in several of our fields.
Richard Browning is the 4th generation of his family to run the farm and began conversion to organic farming in the year 2000. His sons, Nat and Archie started up their own business in 2011; BrowningBros. who provide equipment for the events industry and host wild weddings and glamping from the farm.
Richard’s wife Lucy is a sculptor and has a studio on the farm: www.lucylutyens.co.uk
