A little bit about us!

The Five A Day Market Garden is situated in the beautiful village of Englefield, West Berkshire. We are a not-for-profit community supported project which aims to engage the rural and urban community by:
- selling affordable, healthy, naturally grown produce
- educating children, adults and older people within an outdoor therapeutic environment, with a focus on art, nature and fruit and vegetable production
- encouraging people to get involved through volunteering
- offering a unique team building experience to corporate organisations

In March 2017, Pam Goddard, the Project Co-ordinator at Five A Day received an award from the High Sheriff of the Royal County of Berkshire in recognition of dedicated service to Five A Day and enhancing the life of the community.

We have recently been shortlisted for an award from Bayer / Farming and Countryside Education! Watch this space!

Other attractions in and around Englefield

After visiting Five A Day Market Garden and stocking up on some tasty produce, we would highly recommend a visit to Englefield Tea Rooms for a delicious range of sandwiches, cake and teas.  Just a five minute walk down the road!

Additional attractions in the village include Englefield Garden Centre, just across the road from us.  Many of their shrubs and perennials are grown on site or sourced locally.  More information can be found on their website: www.englefieldgardencentre.co.uk

For walkers, there are lots of interesting walks in the area.  West Berkshire Council have a wealth of information.  For some great ideas, check out www.westberks.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=839   Additionally, if you turn left out of Englefield village towards Pangbourne, go across the motorway and take the first turning on the right, you’re find yourself at Moor Copse Nature Reserve.  The reserve is part of Sulham and Tidmarsh Woods and Meadows Site of Special Scientific Interest, with its 70 acres comprising a series of three wet woodland copsesMoor Copse is renowned for its woodland flowers, butterflies and moths.
