Our Story


barn farm drinks

Our passion is growing berries, which we then press and bottle into high quality juice. Pressed and Bottled at Barn Farm, overlooking the River Stour.

We are third & fourth generation family fruit farmers, who started by growing apples before moving into strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries and rhubarb. Barn Farm Drinks began when we purchased a new Clarified & Cloudy Juice Press for cloudy and clear juices in 2017.

Our Story

BARN FARM GENERATING ELECTRICITY

Electricity is generated from the fruit press waste, which is taken to an anaerobic digestion electricity generation plant at a nearby farm.

In addition, we have teamed up with a Solar powered generation company to produce solar energy on 23 acres at Barn Farm. This generates 4,640MWh (Megawatt hours) per year, providing enough electricity for 1,400 homes. This is great for our farm, as the bees love the wild flowers and grasses which grow between the Solar panels.

This enhanced biodiversity increases pollination on our fruit crops… Without Bees and onward Pollination there would be no fruit for us to press! Also great habitat for birds and the farm badgers.

Electricity For 1400 Homes
We even harvest the rainwater from our factory roof to water our crops!
