Meet your Farmers

First generation farmers James and Rosa call Tap o’ Noth Farm their home and are the people who grow your veg (they don’t? Maybe you would like them to?). 

Both have a huge passion for simple, honest real food (growing and the eating) and work day in and day out to provide the local area with fresh, seasonal and naturally grown vegetables.

James Reid

James began his journey towards employment as a market gardener after completing a Permaculture Design Course in 2003.  Over the past fifteen years he has grown food everywhere from pots on windowsills and back gardens to allotments and smallholdings before acquiring Tap o’ Noth Farm in 2012 and building the market garden in 2015.

James loves his job and the challenges that come with growing food, not only for himself and his family but also his for his local community.


Rosa Bevan

Rosa came to market gardening three years ago after working within the environmental conservation sector as a zoologist. She worked on a number of different urban farms across London as well as running a growing space for residents on a housing estate; BETRA Market Garden.

Since moving to Tap O’ Noth Farm she hopes to further explore the potential for seasonal, local food to feed and empower a community.
