JASON & ALEX

We are two brothers and best mates born and bred in rural Somerset. We grew up here in Pilton on our family farm, Old Burford Farm which has been in our family for 3 generations. We spent our idyllic childhood playing in the woods and working on the farm whenever our Dad managed to catch us! Both of us have always had a great longing to return to the Somerset countryside and our childhood home.

Jason went on to be a builder and project manager after completing a surveying degree. Alex trained as a Doctor and works in A&E, but has always had an interest in carpentry and even took a year out of medical school to work as an oak timber framer. For the last few years he has been working as a carpenter alongside working part-time in a Paediatric Emergency Department.

OUR MISSION

We see huge potential on the farm for community building, education, promoting connection with nature and health and wellbeing. This is a long term goal and to make this a reality we need to make the project financially viable.

Phase 1 is to set up our design workshop on the farm. This is now complete and with a background in building, carpentry and project management, our team are now busy designing and building exciting new projects. We have a collective of local Somerset craftsmen and women from metalworkers to sign writers, architects and upholsterers. As the business grows we would like to introduce an education and training element to the workshop.

Phase 2 is now underway, creating luxury eco holiday accommodation on our beautiful Somerset farm. Our luxury glamping accommodation is in Pilton, within walking distance of the Glastonbury Festival and will be open for Glastonbury Festival 2017.
