📍Five Acre Farm + Flower Barn, Backwell

Now that 5 Acre Farm is an independent Community interest Company (CIC) we wish to see it flourish as a community resource for the people of Backwell and beyond. This fertile Somerset land with its barns and polytunnels on the edge of the town has the potential not just to grow great food and flowers but also to act as a centre for community activity and learning, helping to strengthen Backwell’s quality of life and its environmental credentials.

It is important to those of us who started 5 Acre Farm that we develop ideas and activities with the local community that go well beyond the growing of food. As we find ourselves in a mental health crisis there is increasing realisation of the importance of outdoor activity and connection with the natural world. We very much hope that 5 Acre Farm contributes to the improvement of mental and physical health in some small way.

We have planted the seed with the formation of the CIC – now let’s grow something special together!  


WHERE IT STARTED  At Tobacco Factory Enterprises, our core aim is to be a model of social, environmental and economic sustainability. In early 2018, we decided to develop these values further by purchasing five acres of land near Backwell, just southwest of Bristol, and set about establishing our very own farm.

We grow following regenerative principles to produce nourishing food in a way that protects soils and biodiversity.

WHERE IT IS GOING   Another of our passions is connecting with others – and reconnecting them with the land. We run numerous volunteering, community and youth focused events throughout the year; and in 2024 affirmed this as a mission of the farm by registering as a Community Interest Farm.
