What is Peach and Pippin? Peach and Pippin is a small-holding, four acres of organic paradise, a teaching centre, a woodland, an orchard, a food provider, an incubator, a spreader of goodwill, and a home.
Who is Peach and Pippin? Peach and Pippin is a family run enterprise set-up by Ian and Rebecca who live with their three young daughters, Romily, Miriam and Gwendolyn. Both Ian and Rebecca are teachers but also have a habit of complicating their lives with social enterprises, green projects, apple pressing extravaganzas, and always lots of gardening.
Ian has a history in environmental education and enterprise, teaches mindfulness, meditation and Chi Gung, and plants marigolds wherever he goes. Rebecca works in education as a system leader for a multi-academy trust although originally trained in music and arts leadership. She drives an electric car, makes a mean chocolate brownie, and set up and ran an arts social enterprise complete with Dot to Dot art gallery and cafe over the past 5 years.
Rebecca and Ian saw that the Apricot Centre and all its wonderful orchards and spaces was for sale. Ian had always wanted a van and Rebecca dungarees. It seemed the perfect match. They moved to the smallholding at the start of August 2017.
