The Farm

Our family’s been farming just under two and a half thousand acres of beautiful and fertile Cornish countryside for over 130 years.

Here on the Fal estuary we grow over 400 varieties of daffodil, including many that are new, unique and rare. Our expertise in Cornish cut flowers, professional grade vegetable plants and bulbs - as well as our more than 50 years’ experience - means we also export worldwide and sell direct to gardeners, wholesalers, councils and gardening clubs.

This is one of the world’s best places to grow daffodils and narcissi. It’s a thrill and a privilege to farm here; we also grow cereals (which cover 1,600 acres), raise lamb (just over 500 breeding ewes), supply 80% of the vegetable seedlings Cornish farmers need and, in August, September and October, sell our bulbs online, wholesale and from the shop on the farm.

A little of our history

You can trace Hoskings farming in Cornwall back to the late eighteenth century, but we’ve been where are now, on the Fal estuary, since 1883.The fifth generation of our family to work on the farm have now joined us too.

A life before tractors, transport and all of today’s technology wasn’t easy – but some things in farming are constants which have nothing to do with progress. For all this time, whatever we’ve been doing here we’ve done with care and love for everything we’ve grown, reared and cultivated, always making sure we do nothing in our farming present to harm our farming future.
