Over 40 years ago Carole Bamford started out along a path to lead a conscious, more sustainable way of life.
What began as a small desire to feed her family in a better way and to make a difference, has grown to encompass Daylesford Organic, one of the UK’s most sustainable organic farms, and Bamford, a clothing, bath, body and homeware range and a holistic spa.
Convinced of the need to convert the family’s farms in Gloucestershire and Staffordshire to organic, with responsible farming based on traditional methods, this passion was the catalyst for the first Daylesford Café and Farm Shop which opened in 2002.
With her belief in organic farming, natural, ethical products and a dedication to craft and traditional skills, Carole has successfully balanced a luxury sensibility with sustainability. Since then, both her and the companies she has founded have become synonymous with organic, seasonal produce.
Bamford was founded in 2006, driven by Carole’s vision for natural, sustainable products and experiences created in partnership with the best artisans and wellness experts from around the world. Inspired by her innate affinity with nature and love of travel, a collection of contemporary trans-seasonal ready-to-wear is produced in limited quantities in beautiful natural fabrics.
The Bamford Haybarn Spa in the Cotswolds offers wellbeing experiences and treatments to nurture the mind, body and spirit and has inspired an iconic collection of bath and body products, created from the finest natural and organic ingredients.
Carole Bamford has been at the forefront of holistic living and well-being for almost two decades.
