Mere Farm, ME13
Mere Farm is a traditional working farm in Kent, producing an unusual, colourful mix of crops, including hops, blackcurrants, pears, wheat, oil seed rape and beans. There are plenty of buildings and farm vehicles mainly based in one large farmyard, both old and new. An original Kentish oast house, still in operation, offers extraordinary architecture for filming.
Mere Farm’s 550 acres of rolling landscape showcases an interesting mix of field types – from tall hop gardens to low blackcurrant fields, from vast arable fields to charming pear orchards. A large pond and two reservoirs are also on the farm.
