Trill Farm is a 300-acre organic farm set in the rolling hills and woodlands of east Devon. Romy Fraser (founder of Neal’s Yard Remedies) bought the farm in 2008 aiming to create an education centre to inspire healthy and responsible living, and teach the skills needed to live lightly on the land. Trill Farm is now home to a group of artisan producers who work as a community with mutual respect for each other and the land.
Trill Farm’s ceramic candle pots have been skilfully crafted in the farm’s own pottery, and the candles are made with a blend of Trill Farm’s beeswax mixed with a little vegetable wax. The bees live at the edge of the water meadow in the farm’s grounds, and are essential to the life of the farm as they pollinate the plants and flowers. The candle has a spicy festive fragrance, aided by the addition of homegrown bay leaves.
Bay leaves also feature in Trill Farm’s Winter Tea, along with hawthorn tops and berries, mulberries, dried apple, mallow flowers, and rosehip. These herbs are specially blended to nourish the body and help it to protect itself from colds and flu. The herbs all grow in the Trill Farm Herb Garden, which is tended by farm staff and volunteers.
Eight years ago, Trill Farm’s soap making business was set up, offering workshops in soap making that use botanical ingredients from the farm itself. Herbs like nettle and comfrey are infused in oils and alcohols, and are then turned into beauty products for the shop. Each product is hand crafted and beautifully presented in minimal packaging - with as little impact as possible – creating a uniquely seasonal and ethical gift.
