Hen Corner

Logo

‘Since moving into her West London home a few years ago, Sara Ward and her husband Andy have industriously set up Hen Corner, where they now have a stunning kitchen garden – with raised beds full of seasonal crops – fruit and nut trees, a flock of clucking hens and a beehive with busy bees hard at work making honey.’ Michele Jameson, Country Living Magazine

 

We are Hen Corner. We love the bee keepers, the veggie bed diggers, the jam makers and cider drinkers, the chicken fanciers and the clever cake bakers. 

But not just in the deepest darkest countryside or the far, far away villages but right here in our cities and towns.

 

BAKING, PRESERVING, ARTISAN FOOD MAKING, POULTRY & BEE KEEPING, TRADITIONAL SKILLS

 

Whether it's welcoming guests to our courses or working with schools, Hen Corner is bringing together the country and the city, helping you turn your urban corner green.

'Hen Corner is a charming place where ordinary people are doing extraordinary things, and showing us how we can have a slice of the country life in an urban environment.'

So, come on a course and join us on the journey…
