Brockhill Farm

This is a 4 acre site situated 10 miles north east of Dorchester. The farm has 24 beds and has been producing organic watercress since 1999. The farm is close to Throop Crossroads on Egdon Heath above Turners Puddle, which was used in Thomas Hardy's novel Return of the Native. The beds were built alongside the River Piddle in the 1950s by a Mr H Palmer. Close to the farm is the royal town of Bere Regis which is the home of the 14th century D'Urbervilles Tomb.
