Wadson's Farm Bermuda
Wadson's Farm is located in Southampton parish Bermuda and spread over some 30 acres of land area. It integrates animal, poultry and vegetable farming together to produce chemical free crops. Tom Wadson, the owner has been farming since 1976 in Bermuda. He started with a 1 acre farming land in Paget parish as a part time effort. His focus those days was on growing potato. Later he introduced other vegetables and took up the current farm house in Southampton.
In 2003, Hurricane Fabian almost completely wiped off everything in the farm and Tom had to start from the scratch again. That was the time when he decided to move away from conventional farming and start organic agriculture. He added pasture poultry and sheep, and then pigs (the original Bermuda hogs).
Today Wadson's Farm employs 11 full-time staffs and is one of the leading suppliers to some of the best restaurants and supermarkets in Bermuda. Some of the staff of the farm have been with them for over two decades.
