The Sadeh Farmhouse Hotel in Kent, was delighted to welcome over 40 members of the Jewish community from around the country on Chol Hamoed Pesach, to enjoy an experiential day of learning in a uniquely Jewish community farm setting.
Set in six acres of beautiful Kent countryside, the Sadeh Farmhouse Hotel is a not-for-profit, social enterprise hotel, housed in a 17th century manor house – where all profits go back into the farm. Sadeh is a Jewish charity which aims to educate people about the environment.
During Pesach, the Sadeh Farm was open and welcomed guests for a family fun day. Families took part in woodland activities and nature craft, plus everyone enjoyed an interactive tour of the farm including a tractor ride! Within the scenic farm grounds, guests enjoyed playing lawn games, taking part in a scavenger hunt and spending time with animals including the farm chickens. In addition, there was an opportunity to learn more on seed sowing, soil ecology and solar energy.
Talia Chain, Chief Executive of Sadeh, said: “It was so special to welcome people from all parts of the UK including Sheffield, West London and Gants Hill as well as hosting children who are taking part in the BarMitzvah volunteering programme. We had a wonderful day learning about the environment and nature and we hope to welcome more of the community in the future and welcoming back those that attended”.
The not-for-profit social enterprise Sadeh Farm is located on a working fruit and vegetable farm and last year Sadeh had the honour of hosting The Chief Rabbi who officially opened the eco farm hotel- the first in Europe! The Sadeh guesthouse has five family suites and offers guests: A Farm & Forest foraging tour, pickling, brewing and honey-making workshops, a visit to the chicken coup and vegetable picking. Kosher vegan meals are served in the KLBD-supervised restaurant and include ethically sourced, local produce and organic fruit and vegetables direct from the farm. The eco-hotel puts protecting the environment at the heart of its operations, from the ethical sourcing of bedding, to curtains, toilet paper and detergents. The hotel works with local farmers to source produce to ensure a low carbon supply chain.
