Hen Corner

Hen Corner is an urban smallholding and microbakery based in Brentford. Sara Ward and her family have transformed their Victorian terrace house and garden over the past ten years so it is now home to 20 chickens and three colonies of honey bees as well as themselves. Sara runs chicken and bee-keeping courses in the back garden and teaches a range of food making courses in her kitchen. On Fridays she sells freshly baked bread and cakes.

Courses also include bread making (several different sorts), preserves and chutneys, occasional courses on cheese and sausage making and seasonal courses for Easter and Christmas food. Sara uses home grown products as much as possible – free eggs, fruit, herbs and vegetables from her garden and allotment.
