Owlsbury Farm Allotments

Owlsbury Farm site, opened in 2009, is the largest of our allotment sites with over two hundred and sixty plots, and the capacity for further expansion.  Situated on former farm land, this site is about a mile from Jarvis Brook on the Hadlow Down Road.  Standard allotment plots are 10m x 4m in size but a handful are much larger (10m x 16m).  There are also smaller half plots (5m x 4m) for beginners to experiment with or for gardeners with little time.  Keen gardeners may rent more than one plot.  As Owlsbury has plenty of space there is no waiting list; plots are available at any time of the year and rent is charged pro rata.

The site is protected by a rabbit- and deer-proof fence and is supplied with plenty of water troughs, a spacious car park, composting toilet and green waste disposal facilities.  There is also an apiary nearby and local, qualified beekeepers may apply to keep hives here.

Owlsbury has its own allotment association known as OATS (Owlsbury Allotment Tenants Society) which plot holders are encouraged to join.  OATS works with the Town Council to manage and improve the site and offers a number of benefits to members.  These include public liability insurance, social events, manure deliveries and discounts on seeds and at local garden centres.  More information can be obtained from www.oatsallotment.org.
