Nancarrow Farm, near Truro

Earmarked by all those ‘in the know’ in Cornwall, Nancarrow Farm host superb private and public events throughout the year. Especially famous for its epic feast nights, this working farm four miles from Truro has transformed from modest beginnings to a multi-faceted business, retaining humble values at its core.

A working family farm since 1782, Nancarrow Farm have been rearing traditional and rare breed cattle, sheep and pork for nearly 250 years. Yet despite their ancestral pedigree they, like many other farms, faced overwhelming competition from major supermarkets in the 1990’s. Fighting against the corporate monopoly, Nancarrow Farm made a decision; it was dwindle or diversify.

Carefully and lovingly restoring historic barns onsite and evolving the face of the farm, Nancarrow began a mission to create a rural events venue, somewhere that guests could visit, learn about the farm, its produce, sustainability and have a rollicking good time. Opening their barn doors to the public in 2014, they now offer a unique dining experience packed with atmosphere and tasty food.

Keeping family values and farm-to-fork produce at the heart of everything they do, many of the events and feasts are inspired by the pastoral surrounds. A 100-acre Soil Association certified organic farm, the ingredients largely come from the chemical fertilizers and pesticides-free fields, hedgerows, kitchen garden or larder. All of the animals have free range, receiving the highest levels of animal welfare.

If you would like to visit the farm and take part in one of their one-off events or themed feast nights, a web of country lanes will lead you to this bucolic haven (they don’t encourage Satnavs!). Upon arrival, you will soon pick up on the relaxed atmosphere, undercut by understated professionalism and expert knowledge that quickly comes to the forefront when the farm’s chefs get to work.

A place of gathering for generation upon generation, everyone is made to feel thoroughly welcome. Seating up to 130 guests and forging strong partnerships with like-minded producers, including other local farmers, fishermen, brewers, growers and more, Nancarrow Farm ensure a memorable night is had by all topped off with the most heavenly food, right in the heart of the farm.
