We are Bucksum growers & suppliers of seasonal vegetables
Bucksum began in 2006, from a simple garden polytunnel. The now famous Bucksum sexy salad leaves have been grown in Long Crendon Bucks ever since. Bucksum produce is proudly served by several celebrity chefs as well as by local mums. A selection of seasonal produce is grown in Long Crendon on the Bucksum farm. We also work with other local growers to enhance the range of local produce available. In 2010 the Bucksum Farm Shop opened to the public.
We love to cook, seasonally, with good fresh local ingredients and of course we love to share recipes, our community recipe book is available in the Farm Shop.

Laceys Milk Products
We are often asked for cream, so have decided to trial some local milk and cream from Laceys Farm in South Bucks.Their herd of 120 Guernsey Cows produce the most amazingly good (and good for you) milk and cream which unlike most supermarket milks has not been homogenised. Milk will be available primarily by pre ordering a week in advance
Tims dairy yoghurt’s- we are sorry to say that due to low sales we have decided to stop stocking this product for now.
Guernsey milk has:
12% more protein
33% more vitamin D
25% more vitamin A
15% more calcium
300% more Omega 3
Note: Guernseys are the highest known producers of the A2 type of β-casein protein.
The Golden Guernsey colour is in fact caused by high levels of beta-Carotene, and the effect is even stronger when the cows are grazing on fresh grass in the summer.
