Our story

Sadeh is a place of rich history

The Jewish community have been visiting the farm since the 1940s, when the Jewish Youth Fund purchased the site for The Brady Boys’ Club as a place of respite from the difficulties and dangers of life in the war-torn East End of London. However the house was originally part of Lullingstone Castle which is just across the local golf course and dates back more than 400 years. 

WHO ARE WE NOW?

Who is at Sadeh? We have an onsite community, a brewery and pickle kitchen, an immersive volunteering programme, a community cafe and much more!

Sunlight moves through plants and they grow. Water flows down from the hills and replenishes the sea. The humble earthworms drag down leaves and feed the soil.
