Homepage » Our Origins
Hurstwood Farm has been in family ownership for sixty years. The main product is cobnuts (hazelnuts). The Farm is amongst the largest and most technically advanced nut production unit in Europe. Sainsbury Supermarkets who take much of the produce have partnered us for many years in developing the UK nut market. It is their high standards of hygiene, quality and building standards that has as a by product enabled us to adapt our packhouse as a 200 seat concert hall when it is not in seasonal farm use. The recital hall is one of the first in the Country to install closed circuit television to enable the whole audience to see a close up of the piano keyboard. One of the two house pianos is fitted with an upgraded version of the Stahnke computer reproducing/recording equipment. The Farm now possesses a unique archive of around a hundred top artists who have allowed us to retain their performance for private use. Recent developments have enabled us to extend the capability of these pianos to reproduce "live" performances recreated from archive audio recordings, including piano concertos with the computer piano accompanied by an orchestral recording or a live orchestra.
