One of the highlights of the festive period is a visit to Father Christmas. Last month, Father Christmas was stationed at Darts Farm throughout December in his magical grotto raising a fantastic £2,385.40 for local charity, Hospiscare. Each visitor paid £5 to visit Father Christmas and was presented with a Darts Farm goodie bag.

Michael Dart is one of the Directors of Darts Farm based in Topsham, he comments: “Over the past 10 years our pick-your-own sunflowers have raised a grand total of £26,978.75 for Hospiscare. We are thrilled we can continue to contribute to this valuable cause with our Santa’s Grotto.”

James Dart, Director of Darts Farm says: “Hospiscare is one of the local charities we support throughout the year. This incredible charity offers free expert care for those with a terminal diagnosis in the local community and provides a vital source of support for their families at times of real need.”

Over the past 25 years Darts Farm has continually evolved to become one of the most exciting shopping experiences in the South West. Darts Farm remains a family business run by the Dart brothers; the retail looked after by Michael and James and the farm headed up by Paul.  The family business is, at its core, still a working farm, and sells all of its home-grown produce directly through the farm shop.  

Recently named 'Best South West Farm Shop' at the 2018 Taste of the West Awards,  Darts Farm prides itself on its exceptional customer experience and expertise, enhanced by the Dart brothers’ hands on management and their passionate members of staff and artisan producers.
