akiki organics is a small holding of 12 acres in Worcestershire, farming to biodynamic standards.
Our aim is to be self sufficient producing a range of products that meets the needs of our large family. When we took over the farm five years ago it was very neglected with only a few trees remaining in the orchard. It is taking a lot of hard work to achieve our aim of producing foods as close as possible to nature but we’re getting there slowly.
