The six-and-a-half acre Yeo Valley Organic garden aims to demonstrate that it is possible to garden 100% organically (we are certified by the Soil Association) and still retain a strong sense of design, colour and fun.

They have an extensive compost area which is the beating heart of the garden, as well as refraining from using any chemical pesticides or fertilisers anywhere.

The whole garden puts nature first and aims to encourage biodiversity by providing habitats and careful planting schemes. We need birds, insects and small animals to eat the bugs that could harm our plants and vegetables, and we want to protect the landscape (and everything that lives in it) for generations to come.

The centre piece is a purple glasshouse set within a formal design, framed by hedges and pleached Malus “Red Sentinel”. There are several formal spaces with defined colour schemes. The more informal parts of the garden retain their relaxed contemporary feel with perennial and annual wild-flower meadows, a birch grove and a streamside garden.

To that end, visitors can enjoy light refreshments in the garden café or on the tea terrace, with panoramic views over the veggie garden to the Mendip Hills beyond. Whilst you are here there are dairy goodies and sundry souvenirs for sale in the garden shop. Our new meadow Yurt is the venue for some exciting events over the summer season.

The garden is open and will close for the season on Saturday 29th October. Our opening days are Thursdays, Fridays, and most Saturdays up until the end of September, and then on Wednesdays and Saturdays in October.
